Default Out of space on /

Hey All, Running a default 6.1 install with just a few apps. Ranger,cmus,irssi and spectrwm. I have completely run out of room on / 105%

I have an almost identical system running on another machine and capacity is at 8%.

I have used du to try and find usage problems.

Does syspatch fill up / quickly.

If someone can point me in the right direction to get me started.

The syspatch(8) tool stores its patches in /var/syspatch. If this is a "default" install on a disk drive of 8 GB or larger, /var should have its own mount point.

Select the correct options for du(1) and you can quickly find the culprit. See it's man page for an explanation of these options.

# du -hxd 1 /

My best guess: /dev may hold an accidental normal file rather than all special files. It is not uncommon for an inadvertent typo by a superuser using dd(1) to create a new file in /dev, thinking they have written data to a device.
