StarOffice update


I'm running Sun's orphaned JDS2 linux.

I just updated StarOffice 7 with product update 7 on my T42 Thinkpad and everything worked fine.

However, when I tried to do the same thing on my old 390E Thinkpad, running the command:

./so-7-pp7-bin-linux.bin -patch /usr/staroffice7

The install started, but then I got:

glibc version 2.2.5
./so-7-pp7-bin-linux.bin: The temporary directory is full. (/tmp/sv010.tmp)

So..., how do I work around this? Do I need to empty out the tmp directory - or make it larger? How do I accomplish this? Thanks

James

Is /tmp on it's own partition or is it on the main partition? Either way, you need to free up sapce on whichever partition it resides. Do you have anything in /tmp that you can remove?

Thanks Xavier;

I'm not much of a techie, but, as far as I know /tmp is on the main partition.

I'm not sure what's in /tmp directory(since items get placed there by the OS rather than by me) so I'm not sure what I can safely remove - without causing other problems.

What siz eid the hard drive? Is Linux the only OS on there? If so, I'd suggest you uninstall some unneeded programs to free up space.

Xavier:

This is an old 390E Thinkpad, so the hard drive is only 6.4GB. Looks like the files take up 5.2GB, so I should have 1.2GB of free space...

The /tmp directory looks like it takes up 143.9MB.

JDS2 Linux is the only OS on the drive.
