Let me first introduce myself, I am Ernie. I am a student from the Philippines who is interested to use Linux. I am actually a first-time Linux user. Despite some reviews claiming that Fedora is not for first-time Linux users, I chose Fedora mainly because of its boot-up speed, and KDE due to impressive screenshots.
I find Fedora very good. Unfortunately, I don't have my own system to install it in, nor an external hard disk so I had to settle for a 4GB flash drive I have. Using the liveusbcreator from Windows, I installed Fedora 11 x86_64 with KDE and set up my drive to have 3GB persistence.
Here now is my question.
I noticed on my first boot that the persistence layer has only 0.9 GB of free space. after performing an update, I only had 0.7GB free. This does not leave me room to install the applications I need (Java SE JDK and NetBeans bundle, Opera and Firefox, pidgin) and replacements for some included applications (OpenOffoice.org in lieu of KOffice, Amarok and vlc for kdemultimedia). I tried uninstalling some applications I do not need (filelight, akonadi) but it didn't help me with my problem.
Is there any way I can have more disk space on the same USB drive? What could be good applications to uninstall?
Thank you for any help you might give me on my situation.
