It is the type of warning when Hard Drive or USB is getting full to the max.
I just like Slackware because I think it teach you about Linux to build packages where Ubuntu is like Windows you just install programs you want.

No wonder the changes file is full. If browser still on there are scores or maybe over hundred scripts doing their own thing and downloading all sorts of rubbish. Even when browser is off, still suspect some scripts at work.

Now this seems to work on aufs, ntfs, ext2 , so should have good chance of working on ext4. As an experiment, can you post the output of commands:

Code: Select all

df  -h  /mnt/sdb2
df  -BM  /mnt/sdb2
sh p10/Por/mksavfile.sh  /mnt/sdb2/Test/savgbg.dat  102400 4096
df  -BM  /mnt/sdb2
df  -h  /mnt/sdb2

When I said what I said it was broknman porteussave.dat and it never got full error it just 10min to write the file when poweroff. When I use your script and I started using it Aug 13 when I built the 2 partition but I delete porteussave.dat yesterday and I rebooted 3 or 4 times so that not the porblem and it never ran for over a week this time. I only got the Hard Drive and USB full error after the last boot up. And I didn't do to much but be on the forum and edit slackyd.conf file to add links. It copy something to full up the 256MB porteussave.dat file.
