    has any of you guys have this problem?i can not update,install,remove or do anything with cydia everytime i try to i get this same error everytime i read on the net that it might be because i haveno space on the partition that cydia uses?but i never get a msg like that the only msg i get is failed in buffer_write(fd) (6,ret=-1) and after that i click `return to cydia` and it takes me back to the home page `after taking hours to reload the data`,i believe this might have something to do with me messing around in /media folder via ssh i created a new folder name cydia and inside it i created another one named autoinstall in other to install pdanet ever since then my cydia is useless

    ------------------double post merged------------------
    it all sound dangerous and im a noob at all of this lol and yes i checked with bossprefs and i have no more space in the cydia partition so now i can not do anything and i installed bosstool.deb via ssh and it did install i see it on the `hide apps` section in bossprefs but i dont see the icon on my ipod screen and also i used guicache and reboot and respring many times over and over hopin that would help but in the end nothing helps i clicked on the cydia folder in my ipod thru ssh but i couldnt see anything to try and maybe delete some but i dont think i`ll be able to do it for im just a noob and nobody else seems to be willing to help me except you and i appreciate it i guess ill keep googling for another day lol but if i installed bosstool via ssh and i used guicache why is it not in my screen?man this sucks and also i tried to install it thru installer so i added the bigboss repo and it is not listed in the repo after i install i refresh and did all the steps then i click on sytem category where its suppose to be according to this http://thebigboss.org/hosting-repository/ so after many failed attemps i gave up and downloaded the deb. file from the bigboss directly and installed thru ssh and nope nothing helps now im frustrated lol i feel like punching saurik for not answering my email
