Re: Transmission: No space left on device

I suspect your settings.json file is not getting read by the transmission daemon. Instead of placing the downloads in the /mnt/hdd directory, the downloaded files are probably going to the default location somewhere under /var. Consequently, the root file fills up while the /mnt/hdd filesystem rema...

Re: RPi Radio with squeal

I've been working on a Raspberry Pi internet radio. The audio is spliced from the audio jack into the radio where it then goes into the radio's amplifier and speaker. Additionally I have the RPi powered off the radio's AC supply through a DC-DC step down transformer into the GPIO pins. After I conn...

Re: Transmission: No space left on device

Difficult to say what is taking up the space based on that info. I suggest you try some tool so you can more easily examine what's taking up all the space, you could try ncdu ( sudo apt-get install ncdu if it's not installed, just delete the apt-cache files or something you don't need if there's not...

Re: how to find just the packages INSTALLED BY ME

- There are loads of installs that were done just *before* the release date of the raspbian (and well before I even created the SD image).

I'm a member of an organisation that has conference calls once a month.

Ok. Are you able to update/install now though?

You can put the files back again by doing
