"Can't create or use IPC area. Error was No space left on device"

"Can't create or use IPC area. Error was No space left on device"

Post by Dave Burl » Tue, 08 Jan 2002 23:25:33



Hi,

I'm running linux 2.4.7 on a PowerPC embedded target. When I fit
256Mbytes
of memory to the board I get this "Can't create or use IPC area. Error
was
No space left on device" error in /var/log/samba/log.smbd. It retries
3
times and eventually recovers and Samba runs fine.

However, If I fit 512Mbytes of memory to the board I get the same
error but it can never recover.

Any ideas/explanations anyone?
cheers

Dave

You might like to try and report it as a bug with the SAMBA team and see
whether they know about the problem and whether it can be reproduced on a
machine elsewhere and diagnosed.  Make sure you check the SAMBA digests first
to ensure that the problem hasn't already been reported.

See ya

1. users [not root] get "no space left on device error"..???

Hello,
  I have no idea what I did, but for some reason only root can write
to my Linux drive now.  All other users receive a "no space left on
device" error whenever they start up pine or try to save any files to
disk.
  I _know_ I have about 25MB free on the disk, and when I'm root I can
write as much stuff to disk as I please.
  I have used fsck to try to detect disk problems, and it did, but
that still didn't fix the problem.
  The only thing I can think of that I have done recently regarding
the file system is that I was messing around with NFS so that my
roommate and I could use each other's hard drive, but I got that
working just fine.  I even disabled it, rebooted, and still had the
same problem.
  If anyone has a remedy for this I would appreciate some help.
  Thanks in advance,
