20 ways to break Linux


Linux has a reputation for robustness but there are still plenty of ways to damage a perfectly working system.Here we share some of the ways you can trash Linux so you don't make the same mistakes we did.

01. Fill a filesystem If the filesystem containing /var fills up, nothing can write its log messages and all sorts of system processes may stall. This can be caused by a runaway process spamming /var/log or, if everything is on the same filesystem, it could be all the downloads in your home directory.
