Boot partition of Silverblue is without space


#1

My boot partition runs out of space. I don’t know what files i must erase for retrieve space. In vanilla Fedora this never happens before.

Hmm. That is strange. What does rpm-ostree cleanup say?

Are there any errors in journalctl -b -u rpm-ostreed? What’s your /boot partition setup (cat /etc/fstab) ?


#3

Do you have a number of deployments pinned?

I have three deployments on my host and three entries under /boot/ostree. They correspond to entries in /boot/loader.1/entries:

# rpm-ostree status

I try the rpm-ostree cleanup commands now. They don’t resolve the problem but show to me the same error of rpm-ostree upgrade (i forget of speaking about this errormsg). I believe the problem is here.
Let’s see:

read@localhost ~]$ sudo rpm-ostree cleanup -b
error: syscore cleanup: Cleaning deployments: unlinkat: Operation not permitted
dread@localhost ~]$ sudo rpm-ostree cleanup -p
Deployments unchanged.
[dread@localhost ~]$ sudo rpm-ostree cleanup -r
Transaction complete; bootconfig swap: yes; deployment count change: -1
error: syscore cleanup: Cleaning deployments: unlinkat: Operation not permitted
[dread@localhost ~]$ sudo rpm-ostree cleanup -m
[dread@localhost ~]$ 

How you can see, the problem is this message: unlinkat: Operation not permitted.


#6

I have before rpm-ostree cleanup only 2 deployments, and now i have only 1.
But there are many more entries under /boot/ostree.
I believe the problem is related to the unlinkat: Operation not permitted error msg when i use the rpm-ostree commands.

#8

Do you have any SELinux denials? grep avc.*denied /var/log/audit/audit.log?

If so try: restorecon -Rv /boot


#9

Yes, i i have SELinux denials. But i run restorecon -Rv /boot and didn’t solve the problem. I still get unlinkat: Operation not permitted when i run rpm-ostree cleanup -b.

#10

OK I wrote https://gitlab.gnome.org/GNOME/libglnx/merge_requests/4 which would help debug this in the future. I could provide a test build with that, but…can you try this command as root?

# capsh --drop=cap_dac_override -- -c 'find /boot/ "!" -writable'

Explainer: You’d think a simple find /boot "!" -writable would find unwritable files, but root processes by default have CAP_DAC_OVERRIDE - we do want to see directories/files which are normally unwritable.

This command will also turn up files with chattr +i which is I suspect what happened for you at some point.


#11

I try the command but the problem remains.

Ah wait, that Cleaning deployments: part is a useful hint that I missed earlier. It’s not your /boot directory; the un-unlink()able file is something in your /ostree/deploy/ subdirectory. Hmm. Try this command:

find /ostree/deploy/*/deploy/ \( -type d -o -type f \) -a "!" -writable

#13

I tried this new command but without success.
I’ll proceed to a new installation. But i think that maybe is better wait the next official release to try again :slight_smile:
