"Low Disk Space on Filesystem root" after installing Axolotl and Podcasts

please forgive me for making my entry to this forum with this very basic question (after owning the Pinephone (16 GB) for about two weeks and reading the threads here I have come to realise that I am probably way out of my depth).
Welcome. Do not worry about being out of your depth - most of us are! As long as you are ready to learn to swim all is fine!

My problem is as described above: After installing Axolotl and Gnome Podcasts, I get the following error message: "Low Disk Space on 'Filesystem root' The volume 'Filesystem root' has only 716,3 MB disk space remaining." That figure keeps changing and went down to a two digit number. At that point, Axolotl did not start anymore. I deleted everything I could (well, basically all my files) to come to the present 716 MB (Axolotl works again).

OK - so your filesystem on your 16Gb eMMC has mostly filled up. Of course can happen but really shouldn't after just basic usage. As a comparison my 32Gb eMMC with Mobian, Axolotl and a few other bits has 19Gb free - in comparison I would expect you to have 3Gb free.

You seem to be swimming reasonably to see what is taking space: my guess is the flatpak Axolotl installation is more expensive than the way I do it (the . basic commands towards the bottom of the page). Have to rush right now, will be back later, hopefully someone else can help more in the mean time.
  • ROCKPro64 v2.1 2GB, 16Gb eMMC for rootfs, SX8200Pro 512GB NVMe for /home, HDMI video & sound, Bluetooth keyboard & mouse. Arch (5.14 kernel, Openbox desktop) for general purpose daily PC.
  • PinePhone BraveHeart now v1.2b 3/32Gb daily driver, dual boot via p-boot with Mobian/f2fs/Phosh on eMMC, Arch/ext4/Phosh on SDcard
  • PinePhone v1.2a 2G/16Gb that needs USB board replaced
