Odd small post-install problems


I have a fresh install of slackware-14.0, with teething troubles. I have backed up a homedir on one box and installed it here, but it's all identically set up so I wouldn't expect messing.

1. The path doesn't seem to be recognized in the /sbin directories.
Quote:
bash-4.2$ ls /usr/sbin/massconvert32.sh
/usr/sbin/massconvert32.sh
bash-4.2$ which massconvert32.sh
which: no massconvert32.sh in (/usr/local/bin:/usr/bin:/bin:/usr/games:/usr/lib64/kde4/libexec:/usr/lib64/qt/bin:/usr/share/texmf/bin:.)This sort of thing
The other is a plethora of "No space left on device" errors, when there's loads of space. Compiles barf. Becoming root sorts it. but I should not have to.

EDIT: for example, winecfg terminates abnormally: Can't write .reg files - no space on device. But my user can write there, and there's tons of space.

I feel they may both be the same thing. What?

/sbin is not included in your path as default, but you can easily add it, by adding this line to ~/.bash_profile:
Code:
PATH=$PATH:/sbin:/usr/sbin
The other question looks like your /home is filled up. What's the output of
Code:
df -h /
df -h /home

That's really a noob error, sorry. I have been comprehensively backing up one box, Assembling and installing the Raspberry Pi kit my son sent me so I could send him a screenshot, and grappling with UEFI/installing on an ssd on a third box all in parallel. I forgot Slackware does that with the paths, (I always hack that back) checked it as root where of course /sbin appears, and scratched my head.

Did that this morning - fine. Before I saw your post. I did it this afternoon, and the device was full, because one of those massive cp - a instructions had a typo so I got $HOME/$HOME and it doubled in size :-((.
