Cannot update google-chrome-stable on 1.4
« on: December 29, 2014, 01:24:10 PM »
We plan on re-imaging with 2.x this summer, but need to get our current 1.4 units updated with the latest firefox and especially chrome, but the update fails with insufficient disk space.  We would obviously prefer to use the update script and not have to go touch 700 devices...

Any thoughts?  Tricks?

Same problem. I'm thinking about dropping chrome and using midori browser, chrome is gettint more and more bloated, my low spec netbooks cry for more disc and ram.

Try increasing your base partiton a few more megabytes. I'm using 1.5 now, but adding 500 Mb helped me a lot

I ended up moving /opt to /home/opt and replacing /opt with a symlink to /home/opt.  Same treatment for /var/cache.  moved to /home/cache.
