Probably you have no space left on disc drive. Login as root and free some space on your user home partition. By command
Code:
df -h
you can realize how many space is on particular partition.

Thank you.

/opt/u01/app/oracle/diag/rdbms/db11g/DB11G/trace/
The above oracle database directory is fully occupied with .trc files. Problem resolved after removing the files.

du -a /opt | sort -n -r | head -n 10

The above command provided the top 10 directories eating up disk space.

Thanks,
cdhar
