I am trying to upgrade ubuntu from 9.04 to 9.10.. but the installation says that i have not enough space on /. How do i add the additional space.any command for that? I have installed ubuntu inside windows and the drive in which ubuntu is installed has a little more than 5GB of free space..my swap memory is around 2.6GB (on a 2GB RAM,core2Duo processor) and the total space on that drive is around 20GB.
Also let me know whether plain upgradation to 9.10 will be usefull or not , do u suggest me to uninstall my previous version first and then install 9.10 or simple upgradation would do good? Also i wanna make sure that all the installed packages in my current system remain in 9.10 too..
Further more when i try to start synaptics package manager, i get this error..
Failed to run /usr/sbin/synaptic as user root.
unable to copy the user's Xauthorisation file
The output of df -h on my system is ..maybe this can help u in resolving my issue :p
