Hi,

I m new to Linux. Recently i have installed RH Linux 7.3 on my P-IV machine. I want to install Oracle 9i on it. After mounting CD1 & submitting all the parameters, it was started. On reaching 37%, it asked for 2nd CD. For taking our the CD1 from CD-ROM, I had to un-mount the CD1. I inserted CD2 and press continue. After few minutes a messages poped up as... 'You may not have enough space to write to /tmp/OraInstall/temp8. Please create more space at this location and try again'

As I m new, I do not know how to create more space & continue my installation.

Pls. help me.

Thanks in advance.

Rgds.

Vijay

Your / partition is full (very bad). Try deleting some stuff on it or moving it around.

Oracle install is trying to write to /tmp which is in the / partition so since its full its failing. You can also move your /tmp folder onto your /usr partition and that will give it enough space.

Sorry I figured that if you were trying to install oracle you knew your way around linux smile.gif

Move your /tmp folder to /usr/newtmp:

mv /tmp /usr/newtmp

Then link /tmp to the new directory:

ln -s /usr/newtmp /tmp

Then try the install again.
