I'm running geth on a distant linux Ubuntu machine, I have a total of 12Gb disk space, I thought that would be enough, but it wasn't. I only had the minimal LAMP settings, I installed Geth with these instructions, (I didn't check then but I'm not sure it took that much space). I started syncing and tried installing solC at the same time, and I reached size limit.
This is more of an open question because I can't seem to find convincing answer about WHERE the files are located when I run
geth console or
geth --testnet console. The
chaindata folders are way too small, the whole
.ethereum directory is only 2.1Gb. What is the difference between
Bottomline is is there plan of the geth file architecture for linux ? It seems to be everywhere and I have no idea how to delete everything. I'd also like to know why
/usr/ got filled 5 Gb while all the blockchain data is in
