Darryl... Well done you
You've made what looked complicated far simpler to understand and simple to execute... which solved this particular problem! Brilliant
But it begs the question: how did you come by this answer or even know there was a problem? I checked all the official notifications... couldn't find anything; keep my system up-to-date... well... up to this problem rearing its head... don't understand why it suddenly went wrong
Anyway, it's fixed now!
ThirdOfSix... Filelight... what a nifty little programme
I identified some rubbish and now got my root filesystem down to 3.1GB which, to my way of thinking, is very acceptable
So, all in all, everything solved and PCLinuxOS working beautifully!
Once more a big THANKS to all of you for looking after me and being so generous in giving up your time. I'll now mark the thread as appropriate.
