Zero length file, texlive slackbuild.


Hi all,
I am trying to build texlive from the SlackBuilds repo, and keep getting the following messages, along with a package that fails to install. I have tried downloading all of the sources again, along with a new copy of the build scripts, but still the same result. Any ideas?

Code:

My first thought on seeing your post was that perhaps your filesystem is full so it couldn't create any of the files except to make them zero length.

The common point of error seems to be:
usr/share/texmf-dist

Since that doesn't start with "/" it is presumably relative to whatever directory you're sitting in at the time you run the command. What do you see if you run the following commands?
df -h .

df -h usr/share/texmf-dist

Thankyou, that was my first thought. In the end, I redirected the environment variables for TMP to my home directory. After a couple of attempts, it worked.
