Ubuntu virtual box unable to log in

Rather carelessly I filled up my root partition and was therefore unable to login as I kept getting thrown back to the login screen

The solution was to boot from the original ubuntu iso image via the virtual box settings and ‘Try Ubuntu’

From there it’s possible to mount /dev/sda1 and delete some files to make some space

After that it’s possible to login again and create a new disk/partition in the usual fdisk, mkfs way
