"no space left on device" error.


Dear all

I tried to create new directory in /data1 but It doesn't success yet. Because there's error message "no space left on device" but there are a lot of free space on /data1. Any one know how to fix this problem?

Filesystem Size Used Avail Use% Mounted on
/dev/hda6 48G 15G 31G 33% /
/dev/hda1 19G 5.4M 17G 1% /boot
/dev/hdb1 144G 15G 122G 11% /data1


Thank you

Ekkasit Panyakosit

Perhaps are you out of inodes on this filesystem.

What returns "df -i" ?

Code:
Filesystem            Inodes   IUsed   IFree IUse% Mounted on
/dev/sda1            1098880   70448 1028432    7% /
tmpfs                  64622       2   64620    1% /lib/init/rw
udev                   64622     440   64182    1% /dev
tmpfs                  64622       1   64621    1% /dev/shm
/dev/hdc1            14663680     690 14662990    1% /home
And it gives me the error:

Code:
Write error - write (28 No space left on device)
All i'm trying to do is apt-get update, :| thanks in advance andy.

/dev/hdc1             111G  2.6G  102G   3% /home
I know see the obvious problem, so i guess my next question do you have any documentation explaning how to rectify this problem, or able to explain yourself.

Your filesystem is simply full, not out of inodes.
To "rectify it", remove unwanted files or move them somewhere else.
