    Please post the output of "df", without any arguments, as well as the contents of /etc/fstab and the output of "fdisk -l"
    Sometimes, real fast is almost as good as real time.

    Well, your root file system is full. That is this line from df here:
    Code:
    /dev/mapper/VolGroup00-LogVol00 28345084 28338328 0 100% /
    My guess is that either you misconfigured Oracle and it has used all the space, or temporary or log files have sucked up all your space. First, look in /tmp, then in /var/log, and then in the Oracle data directories for files that are way too big.

    Expanding a file system, even an LV, isn't hard. Add another partition or disc to the LV, and then run resize2fs (assuming your file system is ext2/3/4) to resize it. If you resize the root partition, then you may have to use the "lvm pvresize" first. That will resize the LV so that the resize2fs command will work properly. First, backup all your data to an external drive or to the host system, assuming it has enough space.

    I think that VMware, like VirtualBox, has a tool to backup your image, so that would work as well for backup purposes before you start munging about with the VM "discs".
