RevPi Core 3 Storage space

21 Feb 2018, 18:31

I have been installing some software I have created on a RevPi Core 3 and I am getting low on drive space. I am thinking about removing some packages such as the GUI and maybe Node-Red that we are not using to free some space. I wanted to see if you have any recommendations on how to free up some more drive space?

Thanks

Hi there,
I had the same problem and I started with the raspbian-lite image and add the needed packages. It is easier to go this way, if you don't need the GUI (desktop) and you need some more free space like me. The imagebakery repository allows you to create a customized image. I forked the repository on https://github.com/lemariva/imagebakery and added some packages and configs needed with the raspbian-lite. I can confirm that It is working and with this image you get 2.3GB free space.

Please be careful when using a different image from Raspi foundation: You would need to assure that our Kernel is still used because otherwise you loose all changes we have made to the kernel (RealTime patch etc.).
When we deliver the RevPi Core you have about 1 GB from 4 GB free eMMC. If you have much less then it might be that your system is suffering from huge log files. Have a look in the log directory ro scan your system for huge files. Maybe you can free lots of space by deleting these files.
Another possibility is the use of USB memory (we do have got very small sticks in our shop) or network disk space.

Hi, we're using the RevPi3 core module only.

We will probably not use TeamViewer.

Can you suggest some safe commands to free up disk space based on this use case?

So far I've only dared to use apt-get autoremove / autoclean
Kindly

This is far too few information to suggest things. What specifically are you going to use? Webapplications? Webserver? Node-Red? Python? x-windows? How will you use the pure Core?
