[1.5.2] Update Available : not enough free disk space available for a direct update

What is the problem?

Can't udpate to latest 1.5.3 version


What did you already try to solve it?

Checking my free space
enlarging filesystem to whole sdcard space

Have you tried running in safe mode?


Did running in safe mode solve the problem?

don't think so, will have to learn how to run it.

Raspi 3B+

Ender 3 @115200
TP-link HS110
16 ring neopixel

the question is : what should I do for liberate free space that the system can auto update ?

Reboot the pi and try it in safe mode just to be sure
click on the words safe mode for further instructions :slight_smile:

There should be plenty of room there for the update. It shows your root filesystem has 12G free
If you haven't already, reboot the pi and then try.

So here are my good results.

restarted in safe mode tell me :

the clue is

system temporary files (/tmp): 149.3MB free

that is not all wrong due to my special configuration of system files. in fact I have mount /tmp as a ramdisk in /etc/fstab !


and this is the problem : not enough free ram for update.

so deactivating this mount, and rebooting octopi in normal mode seem ok.
updating octoprint then plug ins


now I can go check for another help about my starting time.

If you want a temp ram disk, don't call it /tmp. /tmp is a system generated mountpoint, and it adjusts the size as needed. If you want a ram disk mounted, call it /temp and you'll be fine

I use to ramdisk the /tmp in order to speed up mjpg-streamer at streming and encoding webcam videos. its an octolapse recomendation. the whole system should have benefit.
it also make some sdcard use economy, increasing its life.

Great! Please us this:
