Yeah, the root was completely filled - at least according to df,

However, the output of your command is:

Overall: Device size: 29.30GiB Device allocated:

So, a 30 GiB root partition. That is way too little for btrfs, even
more so on Tumbleweed. You should have 100 GiB at least. If you want
snapshots, that is.

Well, I accepted whatever was the default partition scheme during install. So,
something the openSUSE team needs to change, I would have thought. At the very
least, a message to the effect. 100GB is insane for a root partition for any
other distro.

Kind regards,
