Your root partition is full (at 100% utilized). You need to free up some space. Fastest way to get breathing room is to remove old log files in /var/log, then look around and see what's taking up so much space. You can easily see the size of individual directories with:

cd /
du -chs *

what is the operating system u are using ?

moreover try the command : badblocks

ex : badblocks -vs /dev/sda1

for more info abt badblocks go thur the below url :

http://linux.die.net/man/8/badblocks

have u installed oracle ?

if so remove the oldest archivelog files also.

If archivelogs haven't been backed up, see if you can backup the files before you remove them.

It is unlikely that this happened overnight. by default linux reserves 5% of a partition to avoid the problem you are having. please post your /etc/fstab. did you change anything recently on your system - like adding a new hd.
if you mount a harddrive on a directory that wasnt empty - your root partition fills up. dont know what linux attempts to do there, but the rule is not to mount hd in directories that arent empty.

Thank you,My warm hearted friends CDollmont,vamsi_k,rotezecke.I've resolved my problem.The reason is that my Oracle database auditing is turned on,so after i removed all the audit files from the audit directory,then it's OKay.
Thank you.
