TAR copy how will that solve the problem of merge  the file system?
You didn't give the output of above commands.  You appear to have LVM.  I need to know the exact situation.

could you tell me what commands I need to display to give a better picture for solution?
Duncan RoeSoftware DeveloperCommented:
/dev/sda5 is tiny compared with /home and /. I suggest you copy the contents of that drive to wherever you want them to be in the file system. That completes the integration - you can re-use sda5 as swap or for any other purpose.
KonfigurationKingAuthor Commented:
what is the "tmpfs  " what does that mean?
Duncan RoeSoftware DeveloperCommented:
tmpfs is a file system type which resides wholly within RAM, except that pages may be swapped out. It's described in Documentation/filesystems/tmpfs.txt in your Linux source tree. In case you don't have Linux source online, I attach a copy of tmpfs.txt.
