Raspberry Pi Using Whole SD Card Memory

When you install a Raspbian Operation System on your Raspberry Pi (I’m currently using Minibian) you can notice that it created a file system with very little space, which can be annoying if you are using a bigger SD card.

I only noticed it when I started to apt-get all those packages that I needed, when suddenly got the message:

cannot copy extracted data for './usr/sbin/php5-fpm' to '/usr/sbin/php5-fpm.dpkg-new': failed to write (No space left on device)

Looking into the SD card’s memory I get:

It’s full!!

So here is the fix:

Login as root user and follow this commands and answers in sequence:

fdisk /dev/mmcblk0
shutdown -r now
resize2fs /dev/mmcblk0p2

Much better now!!
