I just re-flashed with the default config for a gumstix bt and when I do a
df I get the following:
Filesystem Size Used Available Use% Mounted on
/dev/mtdblock1 3.8M 3.6M 160.0k 96% /
I'm trying to load the robostix-2.6.15.tar.gz and it keeps saying I don't
have enough room. No matter how much I delete, it seems to always say I
only have 160.0k free. Any ideas?

Yeah - the jffs2 flash file system needs 5 free blocks in order to
work properly. 5 x 64 =3D 320k.
So you'll either need to remove some stuff, or copy the robostix tar
file onto an MMC or Compact flash card.
If you're not using Compact flash, then you should be able to remove
the IDE .ko files in
/lib/modules/2.6.15gum/kernel/drivers/ide (about 160k)
/lib/modules/2.6.15gum/kernel/drivers/pcmcia (about 112k)
If you're not using wireless, then the .ko files in the
directory account for about 332k
If you don't have ethernet then the
lib/modules/2.6.15gum/kernel/drivers/net/*smc* files account for
The /lib/modules/2.6.15gum/kernel/drivers/usb has 64k in it (if you're
not using USB).
If you're not using bluetooth, then
/lib/modules/2.6.15gum/kernel/net/bluetooth has 184k
/usr/lib/libbluetooth* has about 160k
Finally, if you're not using sound, then
/lib/modules/2.6.15gum/kernel/sound has about 480k in it.
Keep in mind that the sizes I mention above are the uncompressed
sizes. JFFS2 compresses files, so removing stuff will only free up
about 1/2 of the ucompressed size.
