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.

(from 42.2 x86_64 "Malachite" (Minas Tirith))

i disagree with 100gb (if you dont have root resident VMs etc), i have
sufficient space with 26gb (30gb would probably be better)

Device size: 25.97GiB
Device allocated: 23.20GiB
Device unallocated: 2.77GiB
Device missing: 0.00B
Used: 17.23GiB
Free (estimated): 8.34GiB (min: 8.34GiB)
Data ratio: 1.00
Metadata ratio: 1.00
Global reserve: 55.75MiB (used: 0.00B)

PS it is trivial to expand btrfs even online (mounted)
