SOLVED: Remarkable EInk tablet: Can't upload all of a sudden

#1 Post by JGMio » 2020-02-04 17:34

Hi Community,

I'm a long time remarkable user and have uploaded my custom background templates using FileZilla.
The process is fairly simple: Login using 'root' -> go to "/usr/share/remarkable/templates" -> upload the *.png files.
These are at max 650KB with over 1 GB of free space left.

Yet as of today the remarkable returner "Could not start transfer" in the failed transfers window of Filezilla.
The log doesn't supply much information either (below). Since one of the reasons mentioned is "Failure" I'm a bit stuck.
When using scp in the command line gives me an error: "No space left on device" which is weird considering the 1GB of free space.
Could there be some linux quota / cap?
Maybe someone here can give me a direction to search in?

The wiki that has more info on the device

Solved.

There were clutter files from the system update.

solution:

- SSH into your remarkable.
- run "journalctl --vacuum-size=2M" to clean up clutter files
- re-intialize your remarkable with the following two commands:
-- systemctl stop xochitl
-- systemctl start xochitl

On many operating systems a few percent of disk space are reserved for root.
