Hi dude2cool

I have centos 5.5 and i do have -T option with sort. Here is what i get when i do

df -k /tmp

[user@localhost6 vga]$ df -k /tmp/
Filesystem 1K-blocks Used Available Use% Mounted on
/dev/sda5 15872636 8207944 6845380 55% /

What do you suggest?

So you have around 6.5 Gig in / which is where your /tmp is. So you are running out of space doing sort.

Is there any other free space on your hard disk that you can use? If you so, use the -T option. Look it up

man sort

Pretty easy. Find a directory/FS where you have ample free space and specify it using -T

-T directory    Specifies the directory in  which  to  place
                     temporary files
