Question do I need more space?

trying to update sendmail...

first i was going to set up BerkeleyDB and when
i tried to run make, i got: command not found.

installed pkg-get and went to install make
and i ran out of room.

when i df -k i get:

Filesystem kbytes used avail capacity Mounted on

nfs:/opt/java 3851817 3209836 256800 93% /opt/java

my question is...
can i make links to other space(s) on other partitions ie.. /www

or do i need to contact the admin of the system w/ the nfs?

and, why are all the nfs slices the same size and fullness?

The partition sizes are the same because it is mounting the same partition for each.

If you have a different option for your df command you may be able to show the mount more (on Solaris df -k would show as below) OR if you have access to that system, do a command to show what it is exporting for nfs (Solaris: $ share HP: $ exports) - you should see that each is actually the same partition which is why each has the same information showing.

37952960 8600216 29352744 23% /u/pkgs
toast1.here.com:/vol/apps0/u/SunOS/5.6/sparc/bin
37952960 8600216 29352744 23% /u/bin
toast1.here.com:/vol/apps0/u/SunOS/5.6/sparc/sbin
37952960 8600216 29352744 23% /u/sbin


Your other question - check with that other admin - it's possible every thing you needed was already there but your PATH to find it was not. You may not need to install that package, just adjust your PATH.

already installed?

thanks, that explains...
while installing a few common packages, why
files already exist on non-writable drive or somthing...

is there a way to check for installed packages that
give me command not found?

and BTW the output above is what I get from a df -k

pkginfo - read the man page for options - this is assuming SUN OS (which you posted in your Sendmail questions - helps to post OS and version in all questions)

You may also find software that doesn't load via pkgadd - most of these SHOULD be in /opt or /usr/local/. Where to put extra software is left up to the individual admin who may have their own way of doing things.
