I don't know if anyone is likely to be able to help but I thought it was worth a shot so here goes...

I have been running openSUSE 11.0 linux for ~2-3 months having finally had enough of windows. I have an 11GB partition for /home which as far as I can tell only has enough stuff on it to add up to about 4- 5GB but the system keeps telling me I am running out of space. Any ideas on what might be eating up the extra 6GB???

Thanks for that quick help:D. The problem was the trash wasn't emptying properly so everything I thought I had deleted had actually just been hidden away!

EDIT: I tried to give you a +1 for that but it told me I should spread the reputation around:confused:
