Angry Insufficient disk space for netbeans install


Hi everybody,


There my problem :

I want use a pc where it's not allowed to install anything.

I buyed a external usb harddisk, first problem, it's not possible
to boot from usb, so i taked a knoppix cd, and when i want install
netbeans on this external usb hardisk, i got the message :

"Insufficient disk space for proper installation. Additional 11.3 MB is required in /."

After copying knoppix on the external harddrive, and maked a chroot on it, the problem is the same.

What is the size of the USB hard drive?

How did you partition the drive?

Exclamation

thank's for you interest bigrigdriver

the version of the live-cd is Knoppix 5.1

the concerned partition is mounted on /mnt/sda7

i maked a :
cp -Rp /KNOPPIX/* /mnt/sda7/source/KNOPPIX

and :

mount --bind /dev /mnt/sda7/source/KNOPPIX/dev
mount --bind /proc /mnt/sda7/source/KNOPPIX/proc
mount --bind /sys /mnt/sda7/source/KNOPPIX/sys
mount --bind /tmp /mnt/sda7/source/KNOPPIX/tmp

ln -s /mnt/sda7/source/KNOPPIX/tmp /tmp (after removing the original /tmp)

chmod 777 /tmp

chroot /mnt/sda7/source/KNOPPIX/

so .. and i runnnig the .sh of netbeans 6.0.1 file ..

and i got every time this message :

Insufficient disk space for proper installation. Additional 11.3 MB
is required in /.

I solved that problem by mounting a hard drive overtop of the /root/ folder or whatever folder netbeans is bitching about not having space in.

Hi Ruffus77,

No problem. Do a mount /dev/hdX /root where hdX is the name of your hard drive you want to mount. That will put the hard drive in the /root folder and netbeans will be able to find all the space it needs.
