You simply need a much bigger root partition. 100 gigs at least.

please read this out loud, slowly, and let it sink in.

And anyone who still believes in btrfs: do the same, twice.

What I find ridiculous is, that it's the installation default. Of course, none
of the about 100 openSUSE installations, that I care about (and did the
installation), have btrfs roots. I use xfs¹.

The only systems, that cross my site and use btrfs roots were installed by
others, *less* informed users. What's interesting here: those, who are
typically not capable of dealing with related issues use it, because they
accepted the defaults. In that way, openSUSE becomes a (failed) technology
presentation for them, before they go somewhere else.

What does openSUSE want to prove with this policy? "We (about to) master a
technology, that most probably *will* fall on your feet, or at least provide
regular work at moments, where you can afford it fewest at all?

fail on it (for silly reasons, they insist running on ext4 file
systems only. Obviously, they still have too many Linux customers..).
