I read those threads about the WDSharespace with high interest, because i had the same trouble with a full /root/systempartition without knowing why.
With the lastes Firmware 2.1.92 SSH was introduced, so we can log in to the busylinux distro.
I therefore tried an easier and faster way than the above. Also, because its too complicated for me ;-)
I describe, what I did:
First, after I logged in,
I stoped the twonkyserver
Then, I deleted the twonky logfile as it was for no interest for me (at this time) and was very large.
rm -rf /twonky/twonkymediaserver-log.txt
After the logfile was deleted, I created a symbolic Link which points to a place, where the newly written logfile can grow forever…. the raid itself will have plenty of space, so I typed:
ln -s /shares/WDS/twonky/twonkymediaserver-log.txt /twonky/twonkymediaserver-log.txt
Where, in my case, "WDS" is the name of a users private share. Check for yourself, what name you have here (if any) and where you want to point that symbolic link to. I created a user and set up a private share within the webinterface, so this is possible for anyone without knowing something about console commands. You can use the Public Shares, but i wouldnt recommend that.
I'm not sure, but I think the twonky database is located here: /DataVolume/jewab/twonkymedia.db/
This leads to moving the complete database-dir to a new location, with more space on it, and create a symbolic link for the moved folder.
So, I created a folder in the mentioned private share of my user, moved the database-folder to it, and created a symbolic link to the new location.
mv /DataVolume/jewab/twonkymedia.db/ /shares/WDS/twonky/
ln -s /shares/WDS/twonky/twonkymedia.db /DataVolume/jewab/twonkymedia.db
You also can delete the folder /DataVolume/jewab/twonkymedia.db/
, so you don't need the moving (mv …) if you don't have any important data stored and create a new database withing the twonky config-webpages.
This was about the twonky server and I think, thats all for the time. I didnt had much time to test, but it should work fairly enough to prevent your root-partition to be swollen :-)
Just in case, I made something similar with the iTunesDB:
Stop/deactivate the iTunes Service via the Webinterface before this:
mv /DataVolume/jewab/mt-daapd/* /shares/WDS/iTunes/mt-daapd/
rm -rf /DataVolume/jewab/mt-daapd/
ln -s /shares/WDS/iTunes/mt-daapd /DataVolume/jewab/mt-daapd
Ok, hope, this helps anybody, and please, if something is wrong with my typing/code or idea, please don't hesitate to tell me, as I am not a linux guru. Just an normal user who wants a thing to work for that I paid a lot of money and which not worked correctly….
don't forget to start the twonkyserver, if you have finished the steps
