is it enough to change the permissions on the directory alone? what am i dong wrong?
Not sure why you're getting a disk full error, but, I wouldn't recommend putting the directory in "/". The root directory should only contain system folders and files.
If the program will be ran by users you probably want to create a directory in each user's home directory. ( i.e. /home/joeuser/setiathome )
