Packages are only installed on the 256mb system drive, not on to the 2G 
"internal memory card" - I presume you're using an N810.  That 2G drive, 
if it is truly the one you're out of space on, is only used for maps and 
any data you might put there manually.  However, if you are running out 
of space to install applications, then it's on the 256mb system drive 
and uninstalling packages or moving documents from your "home" directory 
to a memory card will help.

A programmer started to cuss
Because getting to sleep was a fuss
As he lay there in bed
Looping 'round in his head
was: while(!asleep()) sheep++;
