    Help: Getting out of disk space while installing DB2 UDB


    Can anyone help me on this

    I am trying to install DB2 UDB 8 on Redhat Linux 7.1.

    After I typr ./db2setup on the prompt, it opens the GUI window for DB2 install. But after I got thru couple of steps I get a message as Not enough disk space on the system. But space available on the disk is 40 GB and needed disk space to install is 500mb . I am not sure what to do for this kind of situation.

    Thanks.

    do this and paste the result:
    Code:
    df -h
    and also tell us which partition number you are trying to do this on.
    Their code will be beautiful, even if their desks are buried in 3 feet of crap. - esr

    Hi,

    Thanks for the suggestion. Below is what I got.

    ************************************************** ******
    /dev/hda8 251M 136M 102M 57% /
    /dev/hda1 53M 3.5M 46M 7% /boot
    /dev/hda6 13G 1.3G 10G 11% /home -"I am using this for installing db2"
    /dev/hda5 13G 2.1G 10G 17% /usr
    /dev/hda9 251M 22M 216M 9% /var
    *************************************************
    I am using hda6 to install db2. Thanks a much.

    Even though you keep the data in /home, IBM programs often want to install themselves into /opt, and since you only have 102 MBs free on /, that wouldn't be possible.

    Do you mind if I ask why you keep /usr and /var on seperate partitions?
