After being with windows for long years i switched to Linux Operating system and i m fascinated using them. So i thought to share of the Knowledge and Tips and Tricks that i have learned from using linux for some days. Its a Great Experience with Linux.
Linux refers to the family of Unix-like computer operating systems using the Linux kernel. Linux can be installed on a wide variety of computer hardware, ranging from mobile phones, tablet computers and video game consoles, to mainframes and supercomputers. Linux is a leading server operating system, and runs the 10 fastest supercomputers in the world. It also is a top contender in the desktop OS market, due to its extremely secure and stable nature, its speed, and its lack of fragmentation issues
So Back to the Point Linux mostly uses Filesystem type ext2 and later versions use 5 per cent of their capacity for root processes (for logs, etc) only. It's apt for root partitions. it wastes a lot of space. So you can reduce it, say to 3 per cent, to reclaim some disk space using the following command (as the super-user):
tune2fs -m 3 /dev/sda1
For non-root partitions (like /home) you can remove that reserved area altogether, using the command below (of course, as the super-user) :
tune2fs -r 0 /dev/sda2
Assuming /dev/sda1 is your /root partition and /dev/sda2 is /home
