Ok, I'm new to openBSD and I'm trying to install the bash-2.04 package on OpenBSD 2.7 and I keep getting the following error:

host# pkg_add bash-2.04.tgz

pkg_add: can't find enough temporary space to extract the files, pelase set your PKG_TMPDIR envrionment variable to a location with at least 4000280 bytes free.

I've tried setting the PKG_TMPDIR to /tmp and /var/tmp and neither one work. I'm almost positive that I have enough space in these dirs. but I don't know how to check.

Any ideas on what to do with this?
Thanks

I dont have much experience with BSD but I'm pretty sure the command 'df' will show you your file systems and how much user/free space there is on each. Maybe that will at least give you a starting point to troubleshoot this......

If you are sure that PKG_TMPDIR is set and has enough free space you may want to check to write permissions on the dir. Can the user you are logged in as write to it?
