Debian Configuration :: No Space Left On Device

Mar 15, 2016

Debian Version: 8.3 (Jessie) KDE (although this is NOT a desktop issue)
Basic Hardware:
Gigabyte Motherboard GA-970A-D3P
AMD 8350 CPU (8 cores)
750 WD Black SATA-6GB/s

I am getting "Error: No space left on device" regularly during updates or installs, but why. Here is data on the disks, filesystems, etc...

Code: Select all df -h
Filesystem      Size  Used Avail Use% Mounted on
/dev/sda1        81G   27G   50G  35% /
devtmpfs         16G     0   16G   0% /dev
tmpfs            16G   76K   16G   1% /dev/shm
tmpfs            16G   18M   16G   1% /run


Seems very doubtful that inodes are the killer.I have googled and followed all the threads, and search these forums and found nothing that fits - every answer there was focused on avaiolable space and inodes..And to make the cheese even more binding, the issue has cropped up on another 8.3 system with far more disk space (larger hard drives) and lots more unused inodes

Code: Select alldf -h
Filesystem                        Size  Used Avail Use% Mounted on
/dev/dm-0                         907G  6.6G  855G   1% /
udev                               10M     0   10M   0% /dev
tmpfs                             995M  9.2M  986M   1% /run
tmpfs                             2.5G   76K  2.5G   1% /dev/shm
tmpfs                             5.0M  4.0K  5.0M   1% /run/lock

Debian Configuration :: Dpkg Report No Space Left On /usr With >1GiB Free

Jul 1, 2011

Command "sudo aptitude install oxygen-icon-theme" return following error:

dpkg: error processing /var/cache/apt/archives/oxygen-icon-theme_4%3a4.6.2-2_all.deb (--unpack):
unable to install new version of `/usr/share/icons/oxygen/22x22/apps/preferences-desktop-default-applications.png': No space left on device


As far as I can see oxygen-icon-theme unpacks only in /usr/share, beyond it I can think of only /tmp, /var or /var/tmp that it may use, all of which have plenty more than those ~40 MiB that it supposed to occupy unpacked. All btrfs filesystems were formatted with "-d single -m single". System is Debian Sid 64-bit with linux-image-3.0.0-rc5-amd64.

why dpkg may have trouble unpacking this package?

Fedora :: No Space Left On Device

Jul 31, 2010

I have an WD 1TB external hard disk. When I try to write any file to it - even a 1kb text file - I get the message "no space left on device". I cannot write to the disk at all anymore - not files, not directories.The drive is formatted as an NTFS drive. I use F13. I can read from the drive without any apparent problem. Would anyone know what's causing this problem?

Ubuntu :: No Space Left On Device Errors

Mar 16, 2010

I recently upgraded from Lucid to Maverick, which went fairly smooth. Then I upped my RAM with some new memory sticks (4Gb to 8Gb). Since about then, I'm seeing these errors in syslog:

Jun 6 22:23:52 howler console-kit-daemon[1224]: WARNING: Failed to add monitor on '/dev/tty2': No space left on device
Jun 6 22:23:59 howler console-kit-daemon[1224]: WARNING: Failed to add monitor on '/dev/pts/0': No space left on device
I also get errors when running "tail -f" as root:

tail: cannot watch `/var/log/syslog': No space left on device

I searched around and I found some other reports of the tail -f error, with the suggestion of increasing fs.inotify.max_user_watches. I set it to 16384, and that at first resolved the tail -f problem, but now I'm getting that error again even after upping max_user_watches.

I know swap is suggested to be approx. the same size as RAM, but with this upgrade RAM is now bigger than the 5.7G of swap.

Ubuntu Multimedia :: No Space Left On Device After Upgrade To 9.10

Apr 20, 2010

I've just upgraded to kubuntu 9.10, and I'm getting strange errors when trying to copy files onto my MP3 player, a SANSA M250 (2GB). df claims it's at 57% capacity (and the figures make sense for that, as well as having about the quantity of music which half fills the SANSA) but when I try to copy a file - from the command line, from exaile, or with the file manager, I get a "No space left on device" error:

$ df
Filesystem 1K-blocks Used Available Use% Mounted on
/dev/sda1 73939452 42184580 27998880 61% /
udev 512472 264 512208 1% /dev

/dev/sdc 1996000 1125056 870944 57% /media/SANSA M250
$ cp test.mp3 /media/SANSA M250/
CP: cannot create regular file `/media/SANSA M250/test.mp3': No space left on device
The MP3 being copied is 2MB in size so should fit easily.

There were no problems until upgrading, when I also moved from amarok to exaile - because amarok2 doesn't have the functionality I want from a player. But this happens even if exaile isn't running, so exaile shouldn't be the problem. How can I diagnose what's going on?

Red Hat / Fedora :: Cannot Write To Ramdisk - No Space Left On Device?

Jul 7, 2011

I am trying to write to a Ramdisk because I suffer from terrible IO speeds on my VPS. It uses openVZ and I run a Centos 5 distro.

So i created my ramdisk with '/bin/mount -t tmpfs -o size=1G,nr_inodes=10k,mode=0775,noatime,nodiratime tmpfs /tmp'

but whenever I try and copy files to it, it just spams me with 'no space left on device even though there is!

Here is the output of df:

Ubuntu :: Can't Login - Failed To Load Module 'dri' No Space Left On Device?

Jul 3, 2011

I'm unable to login to my Kubuntu Lucid. The login screen takes my password, blanks, then returns me to the login screen. I'm getting some graphics errors when running from recovery mode as well as the no space left on device error when attempting to start x from the terminal. Here are some outputs: When starting from recovery mode, selecting failsafeX from the Recovery Menu:


I've come to the conclusion that my root partition is full, but I'm not sure how to clear space, or how much to clear once I work out how to do it. I removed a few packages with apt, but it doesn't seem to have any effect. df -h shows that root is 100% full, yet it has 3GB free. I've grown comfortable with Ubuntu in the couple years I've been using it, yet this level of problem-solving is a bit nerve-wracking to me. I've been considering reinstalling (this machine is running Lucid upgraded from Karmic and Jaunty and has a few oddities), but I hate the idea of being forced to reinstall because I can't overcome this problem. If you need any other information or outputs from terminal commands, I'm happy to provide it.

Ubuntu Installation :: Disk Space - Failes On A "E: Write Error - Write (28 No Space Left On Device)"

Jan 4, 2011

df -h [URL] I did the following command to find everything is in /usr or /var, then tracked it down to /usr/lib and /usr/share as the main offenders, but out of all the directories none are more than 1mb or so.

du -sh /* | sort -gr | head -n 5

I tried to uninstall firefox, which is what got me in this mess in the first place, the log claims it will remove ~240 mb but failes on a "E: Write error - write (28 No space left on device)" [URL] If I could juggle something onto an external hard drive so I can uninstall firefox I would be out of the wood. Failing that I believe a new install is in order.

Slackware :: Compiling Large Slackbuilds - Error-message - Not Enough Space Left On Device

Aug 20, 2010

I am currently running slackware 12.2 on a 25 GB partition. I like to use slackbuilds, but when I try to compile larger tarballs (like abiword, or a patched version of Ghostscript as I did today) I receive an error-message: 'Not enough space left on device'. I think the size of the partition must be big enough (I never got this message when compiling with Linux From Scratch). I think it has something to do with the size of my /tmp directory, but I don't know how to fix this. Is there a way to solve the problem, so that I could be able to use slackbuild-scripts?

General :: No Space Left On Device Error With Plenty Of Free INodes After Cross Compiler Setup

I have searched google for a couple of days, and I keep hearing about an INode limit on filesystems, but that doesn't seem to be the case.

Now whenever I try to download something, watch a ..... video, or listen to Pandora radio, it just stops playing after 2 seconds. Downloading says "No space left on device".I also get the error as root.I do have 5% and more free of HDD space. After reading the similar posts I checked all of this, so if I am overlooking something on the forum, I apologize for an extra post about.

Slackware :: Disk Space Lost- Root Partition Has Very Little Space Left

Jan 31, 2010

Today I was installing a lot of software since I'm just setting up my Slackware system again after a fresh install, and I realized that my root partition has very little space left.

Here is the output of df -h:


As you can see, I have a 20G (19G here for some reason) root partition, 8G /var, and 86G of /home. I thought this would be plenty since many recent recommendations for / are 10-15G. Now, though, 17G are used up for some reason! How is this possible? I thought a full slackware install only had about 4G of software! I don't have any music or movies or any crazy huge files that I know of, and those would be in my /home directory anyway. Is there any way I can see which files are taking up all this space?

If it's necessary to allocate more space to my / partition, is it still possible to boot up a GParted live Cd, shrink /home a bit, move some partitions to the right, and expand my root partition? I would REALLY prefer I don't have to reinstall since I just spent a ton of time setting up my system again, but if worst comes to worst ... :'-(

In case you're curious, here's my /etc/fstab:

Debian Configuration :: Synaptic Tapping - Left Side Of The Touchpad Is Not Enabled For Vertical Scrolling

Dec 2, 2010

just installed debian squeeze KDE after years of ubuntu and suse.. For some reason, after I finally got both scrolling and tapping to work, I have a weird weird touchpad through my xorg.conf: - tapping on a tab in chrome closes the tab.

- tapping in a text field pastes txt that is in the clipboard, each successive click keeps pasting the same thing

- the left side of the touchpad is not enabled for vertical scrolling (?), and for some reason the directions are inverted (move finger up to scroll webpage down)

- when having multiple windows open, tapping that window will highlight it, but the previously selected window stays overtop of the now selected windows. Using the actual left click button the windows change normally.

Debian Configuration :: Missing Disk Space / Get It Back?

Feb 19, 2010

I seem to have a major discrepancy between what df reports and what du reports. df tells me that I am using 20G, but I am only able to find 9.5G using du. What follows are the ls -l of root, a df of my system, and the du for every directory in root that is not a symbolic link, mnt, or proc. I would appreciate any suggestions on where to look for the remaining 10.5G that seems to have disappeared.
I am running under VM Player code...

Debian Configuration :: Squid3 Access.log Size Too Big - Run Out Free Space

Mar 17, 2011

i have successfully set up squid3 with squeeze using guide on this forum viewtopic.php?f=16&t=59301 . The only problem that i have is the size of /var/log/access.log is too big and keep increasing so i run out of free space. The size of it always the same size as my free space hard disk (so it make me run out of free space in just one day, it can have size to 30 Gb ) right now , the only workaround i make is using crontab to rm access.log every hour . I'm sure this is not the right solution . Does anybody know the correct workaround about this ? I have searching in google but seems havent yet have luck with this .
