That could fill up your root (/) partition.  Getting rid of obsolete kernels
could help.

Another thing is to think out what you have in root.   Does it include
such things as /var, /tmp, /home, /usr (including /usr/local maybe) 
You may wany to move something like /home or /var or /usr/local to
another large partition and make a syn link.

Another option is just making separate partitions for /tmp, /home
/var and /usr or at least /usr/local.   Of course, that would
require taking the system down, backing up all affected partitions
with dump(8), revising the partition structure, editing /etc/fstab and 
then restoring everything with restore(8).
