Mandriva saying temp directory out of space
I have Mandriva Linux 2009 PowerPack on a ASUS eeePC 1000HE which i installed about 2 weeks ago. I am using the KDE 3.5 desktop and the system has 2GB Memory, 160GB Hard Drive space. As far as I remember I used all default install options when I installed.
Tonight i tried to install some system updated but shortly after it started it gave errors that there was not enough space. I then tried to reboot and it said "Temp directory /tmp) is out of disk space. KDE is unable to start.
I know with linux there are 3 partitions, swap, and something like a partition for programs and data. Would this have to do anything with it? Or is there a temp directory somewhere that ran out of space. How do i fix this issue? I am new to Linux so don't know a lot and can't even boot into this system now. How would I fix a problem like this?
