Capacity 3% BUT "no space left of device"?

Capacity 3% BUT "no space left of device"?

Post by Tony Gonzal » Fri, 13 Sep 1996 04:00:00



I have a ramdrive of 1 meg but when I try to copy something to it,
like a file cosiderably smaller, I get an error telling me there's
no space left on the device.  And a df command shows that it's
only at 3% capacity.

Filesystem         1024-blocks  Used Available Capacity Mounted on
/dev/hdb2             371276  258566    93533     73%   /
/dev/hda1             415544  301984   113560     73%   /mnt/msdos
/dev/hdb3                988     428      560     43%   /d
/dev/ram                 985      28      957      3%   /r
/dev/hdc              579048  579048        0    100%   /mnt/cdrom

Anyone know what's going on?

Thanks.

Really rough guess, having never used a ram drive intentionally.

see what the inode usage is; df -i should do it (working on solaris
at work :-|

If you run out of inodes, you are out of luck. When you make the file
system, you can specify the number of inodes.

Good luck;

1. "semget: No space left on device"

On a server built from a 1.3b6-dev source about 3 weeks ago running on
IRIX 6.2, tonight the server would not start.  Nothing.   Just this in the
error log
 semget: No space left on device
(can't be referring to disk space, file systems have plenty...)
So it's just about time to ask, "Why is this night different from any
other night?  This httpd started fine on all of the prior 20  or so prior
nights but on this one we must reboot."

bleh, wassup?
