    If this partition is /usr
    and you compiled apache recently then try the following in shell (SHH):

    cd /usr/local/apache
    rm -f core.*

    Hello !

    Thank you very much for your information.

    /dev/hda9 is full 100%.

    can i echo these files :

    1. cd /var/log
    2. echo > filename (empty the files)

    what are the files to empty. any ideas ?

    what about cd /usr/local/apache
    rm -r core.*

    I would suspect that if it is /var it is prob logs of some kind or possibly mail.

    "cd /var"
    "du -h -d1"

    Will list sizes of dirs and just report from 1 directory in...should put you on the track of where the offending files are located.

    Yes, I would recommend removing all ".core" files.
