OSError:[Errno28] no space left on device: /tmp/swap
I was trying to load redhat 7 and in the setting up of the hard drive or
formating I received this error. I tried to do a fdisk but the system will not
open the device. It is like there is no hard drive. I have gone to windows
and tried to access the drive and there is nothing. Fdisk in DOS shows no
drive. How do I get my hard drive back? The drive is a 4.3 Gb and the chip is
a 333 Intel.
What type of drive is this? What kind of interface is it connected to?
The hard drive is a Fujitsu model MPC3043AT, 4.3GB, ISA. The BIOS shows no
drive and I can not define it in the BIOS. I have removeable hard drives so I
can snap in the drivve for Windows or remove it and snap in the drive for Linux.
When the Linux software was formating the drive I received the error. HELP.
I am not sure how I can help - if the drive does not get detected by BIOS I do
not think the Linux kernel is going to see it.
I recovered my hard drive. I had to manually define the hard drive to the
BIOS. Then I used debug to low level format the drive. Then I used Microsoft
fdisk to portion the drive and then formated for FAT 32. I now have my hard
drive working. I don't know what Linux is doing but it sure destored the
drive. If you know of some other way of correcting the problem, let me know.
If you used the fdisk /mbr command from a windows boot floppy, it should make
you able to boot windows again.
