1st, yes, if I repartitioned my Slave Back End mythtv box I would place
all recording directories into their OWN partitions. But, before I
resort to something so drastic...
Does anyone have any experience at managing space on individual
I thought I was safe as I was reserving 30% disk space in the partitions
containing mythtv recordings. Or so I thought.
My back end was crashing so I checked the mythtv backend logs and saw
error messages about running out of disk space. Sure enough, the
partition where 1 of my 2 recording directories existed had hit 100%!
The other recoding directory in a different partition was at 40%. So,
apparently, the 30% free rule I set up either does not work or it
represents 30% free of the total disk space. Well, it wouldn't be so
bad except that the 100% full partition just happens to be the root
Ok, so I'll never configure a mythtv box like this again. But before I
rip into this box - is there a way to manage INDIVIDUAL partition usage
when recording mythtv shows?
