Also, I think a 40GB partition is not big enough to
super large updates. If you have to delete snapshots manually
preventively, there's a size problem.
I understand these massive updates are rare, but still.
On one of my machines, I encounter this problem with nearly every
update. I've gotten into the habit of manually deleting snapshots
before running zypper dup, but even that isn't always enough to prevent
running out of disk space. (FWIW, my root partition is 50 GB; free
space fluctuates between 5 GB and 20 GB.) I've taken to clearing
out /tmp and /var/tmp as well, though of course that usually requires
rebooting into runlevel 3 to make sure I'm not deleting anything in use.
