Hello

I have a linux box that is running redhat 7.1, which has been fine for about two years. The other day I was doing an update and I got his error message.

Testing package set / solving RPM inter-dependencies...
########################################
RPM package conflict error. The message was:
Test install failed because of package conflicts:
installing package kernel-2.4.20-20.7 needs 8Mb on the / filesystem

I checked my partitions and it seems that there is 8Mb free?

Filesystem Size Used Avail Use% Mounted on
/dev/sda8 251M 217M 21M 91% /
/dev/sda1 53M 32M 18M 64% /boot
/dev/sda6 5.4G 2.5G 2.6G 48% /home
/dev/sda5 5.4G 949M 4.1G 19% /usr
/dev/sda9 251M 175M 63M 74% /var
none 251M 0 250M 0% /dev/shm

When I checked it initially, the /var directory did not have enough space on it. So I moved a few things around and I freed up 63Mb.

Anyone got any ideas why this problem is happening?

Cheers
Joey
Run df without the -h option and paste the results. You probably dont have enough space (perhaps they need extra space for temp files etc)
