I do not believe yyzox problem is not from the size of his/her root partion,  you can have it take up the enitire hard drive if you would like. Have seprate partion for each filesystem (/, /usr, /home, /var and ,/tmp) is not necessary, it just protection mechinism to portect so if a heavly partition  goes down everything it doesn't kill the system.    

I do not know what the problem is nor how to fix it.  Sorry I couldn't help. Can you boot into single user mode and run, fsck  on the disk?

Good luck
