[mythtv-users] MythTV error log Filled Hard drive.

OK I put a head on my headless machine and when I boot I can boot the system
in fail safe mode.  When I do boot I also notice that MySql service fails to
start.  Any thought on what this problem is.  Any idea how I go about
finding very large files on my system?

When (and if) you get this machine up and running again - make sure that
you have a sshd deamon running as well. As a small-footprint backup for 
vnc.

Typically such logs will be located under /var/log
eg: Gentoo locates those files under /var/log/mythtv

Are you able to temporily move some of the .nuv files to your Windoze 
machine and reboot? That might give the space you need.
