how do i download this file?

the file size is 500mg byte..
and i have enough space left
but not in /tmp

when i download something to /home
it seems to go /tmp first and copied to /home
and i can't download a file bigger than space left in /tmp

how can i get around this?

why your / is so full, with setup you have there must be as little there as possible clean up /tmp that's my suggestion, here's my df -h output for comparising
[neo@matrix neo]$ df -h

yeah, seems like you could move something out of /tmp at least long enough to get your file and then replace it. i'm interested in the can't download directly to /home thing. i think i do that all the time, but maybe i don't know what's really going on. wouldn't be the first time.
