I have this partition scheme:

Code:

/dev/sda3        21G   20G     0 100% /
tmpfs           200M  1.4M  199M   1% /run
dev              10M     0   10M   0% /dev
shm             997M     0  997M   0% /dev/shm
cgroup_root      10M     0   10M   0% /sys/fs/cgroup
/dev/sda4       126G   35G   85G  29% /home
none            997M     0  997M   0% /run/user/1000


I don't remember what I was thinking when I did this, but this is on a computer I would rather avoid backing up and reformatting, because it's not mine.

So, is there a good way to mv /usr to /dev/sda4 and install grub on sda4? This would solve both the repeated out of space issues and allow me to genkernel new kernels, which don't fit on sda3 any more.

What exactly is using up the space on sda3? If it is portage then it is easy to put elsewhere by setting $PORTDIR and $DISTDIR, and $PORTAGE_TMPDIR.

Everything but /home. Dumb, I know, I need more than 20 G's for this, but I remember now that I set it up this way so I can leave an intact /home partition if I need to reinstall for any reason.

I ended up booting with sysresccd, resizing sda4 and having sda3 eat up the space I created by pushing sda4 back.
