Re: [opensuse-factory] Re: Keeping TW installation lean (Tumbleweed snapshot 20190201 released!)

Hi,

It would be interesting for you to check how much snapshots you have before
the upgrade. In those case of exceptionnal almost full distribution update,
I
would delete all old snapshots (afterward the running system is working) and
only keep one full in case of. Once snapshots are removed, I also rerun
btrfs-
balance to force reclaim of free space.

Did all that. I started the update with only one snapshot that I set up to be
my default subvolume for btrfs (so it shouldn't take up more space) and ran
the balance process of btrfsmaintenance beforehand.

Still, the update was too large to pass without an issue...

But compressing root solved it, so I guess there's that.

Not sure if this was covered here, but in case you compress root: make
absolutely sure that you do *not* compress /boot/ with zstd!
GRUB cannot (yet) decompress zstd partitions and you'll end up with a
system that cannot boot. It might work if /boot/ is on a subvolume, but
I have not tested that, so take that with a grain of salt.


Thanks for your input anyway!

Cheers,
Pierre.
