|yes, I did
|I found the 'mystery' stuff using up 12Gigs.
|All hiding in /root which is not accessible to user.
|anyone around tonight ?
|i'm not around, i'm just here.
|I've just trashed my upgrade to 12.10. Thought I was clever doing upgrade with disk, chose that option. too. Buuuut, I also chose the main user and it BLEW away the old /home/user data and gave me a new blank one. Ugggh.
|and now you know why backups are the golden rule of upgrades
|First fix is /boot has new stuff on it. And /dev/sda1 has my main boots stuff on it but 12.04 is latest there.
|I've copied the contents of /boot to /dev/sda1, but I know there is more to do yet.
|I need to fix grub on /dev/sda1 to utilize the new stuff copied from /boot. Not sure how to tackle that.
| /boot has been fixed, so has nvidia. The website had a LOT of negative vibes on how ubuntu handles (it doesn't) the install of Nvidia driver. On to other fixes, now.
