Yay install brave error disk space (Solved) Thanks

I installed Archlabs trying to install Brave from yay and get this error message.
I have a 124 gb free space in the home folder. I don’t understand why ?

error: Partition / too full: 142853 blocks needed, 33148 blocks free
error: not enough free disk space
error: failed to commit transaction (not enough free disk space)
Errors occurred, no packages were upgraded.
error installing repo packages 

Have you tried clearing out your cached build directory, probably /tmp?

All I can think off.

Just tried that even cleaned the yay folder still the same error.
Plus the only way to boot Arch now is from Arch-Linux with Linux Linux fallback initramfs.

Do you have separate partitions for /home and / (root)?

The error is saying you don’t have enough space on / not /home so 124G free space in /home won’t help you.

You may be better served by installing brave-bin opposed to building it?
When possible, I try to grab the bin

Thanks for replying brave bin is the version I use.

I can’t believe this sda7 is the system folder.

You’ve got some cleanup work to do

It is; that’s the root file system. Brave (any application) will want to install files to /usr/bin, /usr/lib etc … and you only have 124M available.

It is the swap file 31gb how.

A typo or some other error during installation. Did you make a swap file or try to create a swap partition during the install? If it’s a file, you can delete and re-create a new swap file.

Where are /dev/sda2 - /dev/sda6 ? Please post the contents of /etc/fstab, and the results from:


You probably have 16G RAM :grinning:

Anyway, either follow @PackRat suggestion to resize the swap file/disable swap, or use gparted to resize /dev/sda7 and /dec/sda8. The size of dev, run and tmp file systems are also abnormally large.

Thanks chroot & PackRat

I would never have guessed it would have been a swapfile, this was completely my fault as a swap file was make during the install. I don’t even need a bloody swapfile I have 32gb memory.
All is now normal.

I’m quad booting Arch,Archlabs,win10

Thanks so much again


I’m not very happy about the size of the boot partition that windows 10 made, only 100mb it use to be 512mb.
