...you also have to worry about transaction logs. If they don't have a
filesystem to write to, your database tends to stop. This is usually
in /var/log/mysql.


   As far as Debian/Ubuntu and mysql, you need to worry about /var/log/mysql
and /var/lib/mysql. 

   Trunk also has a tendency to run amok with the log files for mythfrontend 
and mythbackend and you can fill up a volume with those too.
