• \[SOLVED\].INSTALL (Write failed) + tmp = no free space


    Since a system update couple days ago i now cannot sucessfully update.
    For every package i got :

    warning: warning given when extracting .INSTALL (Write failed)

    and after that, an error telling me something like copy of temporary file to /tmp/alpm_VuKpzZ/.INSTALL has failed (no more free space…)…

    /tmp is not mount elsewhere (in my fstab, i only have swap and / root).
    and my root has 22GB free.

    I’ve removed everything inside /tmp but always have same warning??

  • Try adding tmp to your fstab file like this:

    tmpfs /tmp tmpfs nodev,nosuid,size=2G 0 0
    
  • I did change the fstab accordingly but my system did not start xorg.
    I then change to another terminal screen, updated with -Syyu under root (found that linux kernel got updated this time), rebooted and now back to work again…

    I then re-installed all packages that had the previous error, with pacman -S packagename.

    I commented out the tmpfs line in fstab and everythings fine now…
