No space on device
I've had mythdora 12 running for about a year now. About all I've done is add another 1.5 Tb hard drive. Today all my recordings disappeared so I tried rebooting it. X hung when it tried to start, so I pressed alt+F4 to get to a command prompt and tried to start it manually. Among the error messages was "No space on device".
I tried the df command. None of the drives were full. I tried df -i and one of my inodes was at 100%.
I'm really quite new to Linux, so after much mucking about I found a directory called "maildrop" that had an enormous number of small files in it. I'm not using my MythTV backend for mail that I'm aware of, so I took my chances and deleted all these files.
After that, MythTV worked just fine. So I guess my question is, did I just destroy something important?
