Out of Internal Space... cleanup issue

Device: NANO
Type: Bug
Status: Closed

I just received my nano, and so far so good. So for my first module I installed DWall, it installed fine and I played around for a bit. Then I wanted to install nmap. It installed ok, but needed dependencies and tried to install them... of course it failed due to internal space. So I uninstalled DWall, and tried again on nmap, again it failed as it should due to space.

Here is the issue, Knowing I have a very small disk space to install modules,,, I went ahead and uninstalled nmap... so at this point I dont have any modules installed. So I then wanted to play around with DWall again since it ran fine the first time around, but this time it would not install due to not having enough disk space. What???

So I then ssh'd into the pineapple and did a df command, which indicated Im 98% full. Should it not clear out the space when I uninstalled?

root@Pineapple:/# df
Filesystem 1K-blocks Used Available Use% Mounted on
rootfs 2240 2188 52 98% /
/dev/root 12800 12800 0 100% /rom
tmpfs 30600 532 30068 2% /tmp
tmpfs 30600 68 30532 0% /tmp/root
tmpfs 512 0 512 0% /dev
/dev/mtdblock3 2240 2188 52 98% /overlay
overlayfs:/overlay 2240 2188 52 98% /
root@Pineapple:/#

Question1: Does the pineapple gui cleanly uninstalls the modules?
Question2: And where exactly the downloaded modules reside? Because in /pineapple/modules there is no DWall or nmap directory.
Question3: What would be using the extra space?

Thanks

I think I'm in the same place.. my df command (or looking in Advanced) looks similar to yours.

At this point, I can't even capture any more SSIDs even though the log shows many "new" SSIDs... the Dashboard reports 0 SSIDs added this session.

I can only assume it's because after all the installs/uninstalls/reinstalls of modules, I'm out of space even for capturing new SSIDs.

Indeed that was the issue.. all those uninstalls/reinstalls/installs.. they never cleaned up properly. I was so out of space that adding SSIDs was impossible (no errors) but I could see the log full of probes.

Did a Factory Reset.. it's fresh (but latest firmware was intact).

Now capturing SSIDs again! The space on this is really limited and while you can install a few modules locally, they don't seem to clean up and you will be out of space in no time. Factory Reset got me back to working order.
