I have tried several methods for installing. It seems to tell me that there
is no space left on device /dev/hdc? I have manually partitioned my
/dev/hda because I need the IBM Hibernation Partition (0xA0) as a primary.
Might this be a problem? A "df" on tty2 shows plenty of room in all
What partitions/mount points are you using (include the size of each)?
Most likely a dupe of bug 18403.
Resolved... Sorry to steal your time. The problem is that my / partition was big
enough alright but there weren't enough inodes available. Only after setting up
a different partition with a lot more space and then mke2fs'ing a new / myself
with a different blocksize/inode-per-blocks was I able to copy the /dev
directory in it's entirety.
