Filesystem /var "stuck" at 105% full
For reasons I haven't figured out yet, X is making a massive log file in /var/log (Xorg.0.log) that quickly fills up whatever filesystem it's mounted on. The temporary workaround is theoretically deleting this log file to free up space... however, when I do this, the filesystem still says it's full!
Is there a 'recycle bin' feature I might be missing?
I'm giving OpenBSD a go courtesy a LiveCD (MarBSD).
Here's the outputs of df and mount for reference:
$ df -h Filesystem Size Used Avail Capacity Mounted on root_device 660M 660M 0B 100% / mfs:3019 7.7M 114K 7.2M 2% /tmp mfs:27037 63.2M 63.2M -3.2M 105% /var mfs:28467 9.3M 6.0M 2.8M 68% /etc mfs:9803 15.0M 11.0K 14.3M 0% /root mfs:22785 2.3M 32.0K 2.1M 1% /dev mfs:29244 25.2M 23.3M 633K 97% /binmfs mfs:7970 326M 226M 83.8M 73% /usr/local mfs:21696 96.8M 72.0M 19.9M 78% /home $ mount root_device on / type cd9660 (local, read-only) mfs:3019 on /tmp type mfs (asynchronous, local, size=16384 512-blocks) mfs:27037 on /var type mfs (asynchronous, local, size=135000 512-blocks) mfs:28467 on /etc type mfs (asynchronous, local, size=20000 512-blocks) mfs:9803 on /root type mfs (asynchronous, local, size=32000 512-blocks) mfs:22785 on /dev type mfs (asynchronous, local, size=5200 512-blocks) mfs:29244 on /binmfs type mfs (asynchronous, local, size=54000 512-blocks) mfs:7970 on /usr/local type mfs (asynchronous, local, size=691200 512-blocks) mfs:21696 on /home type mfs (asynchronous, local, size=204800 512-blocks)
