Disk Space on Galileo

I am having trouble installing packages etc on the Galileo due to disk space. I feel there's an error because I do have a 32Gb card.

I'm sure there's a catch or something very basic I am not knowledgable about

Here is the result of df -h

root@galileo:~# df -h

Filesystem Size Used Avail Use% Mounted on

/dev/root 1.3G 1.2G 5.1M 100% /

devtmpfs 116M 0 116M 0% /dev

tmpfs 116M 0 116M 0% /dev/shm

tmpfs 116M 13M 104M 11% /run

tmpfs 116M 0 116M 0% /sys/fs/cgroup

tmpfs 116M 0 116M 0% /tmp

tmpfs 116M 4.2M 112M 4% /var/volatile

/dev/mmcblk0p1 50M 17M 34M 33% /media/card

How do I go about freeing up some space here?

Tips appreciated!

The problem is that some cards are formatted so that there is only one partition of about 50MB. The line

/dev/mmcblk0p1 50M 17M 34M 33% /media/card

summarizes it (no matter the length of your SD card, you can use only 50MB). It happened to me and

another thread shows the same problem. I do not know the reason/s. I've solved by repartitioning. Take

a look at
