pkgadd: errno 28: No space left on device

Hi,

During package install, am getting:

WARNING: unable to write temp contents file </var/sadm/install/t.contents>
(errno 28: No space left on device)


I tried to delete some stuff under "/var" But I cannot locate who is occupying "/var" space. Because:

Code:
# df -h /var/
Filesystem             size   used  avail capacity  Mounted on
/dev/dsk/c2t0d0s0      5.0G   4.8G   117M    98%    /

AND

Code:
# du -ksh /var/
 426M   /var

Not able to locate who is eating "/var" space.

Please guide.

Bye,
Viki.

/var isn't a separate file system on your installation. You need to look everywhere in the / file system (still including /var) for potential big files/directories to clean, if any.

Hi,

Just want to confirm: should I check all dir/files inder "/" ?

Code:
# df -h
Filesystem             size   used  avail capacity  Mounted on

Yes but what you show are all the mounted file systems. Only the first one (/) is of interest for your package installation issue.

Sorry, I didn't got your point. Can you give more details. I am not a solaris expert.

Thanks
