Unhappy installing package R-1.8.1-2 needs 26MB on the / filesystem


Hi,

I've just gotten RedHat 9 to work (yipee!) and I'm trying to install R, a statistical programming language. Installation requires me to install some rpms, and then type

rpm -ivh R-1.8.1-2.i386.rpm

... here's what happens:

[root@localhost me]# rpm -ivh R-1.8.1-2.i386.rpm
warning: R-1.8.1-2.i386.rpm: V3 DSA signature: NOKEY, key ID 97d3544e
Preparing... ########################################### [100%]
installing package R-1.8.1-2 needs 26MB on the / filesystem

what can i do about this?
I thought I partitioned my hard drive leaving enough room for all kinds of stuff.

Thank you,

Alexis

Please post the output of
df -h
and
fdisk -i /dev/hdx
x= your hard drive
replace the "x" with a, b, c, or d
a=master on primary
b=slave on primary
c=master on secondary
d=slave on secondary
