Hi everyone,

As I am doing an apt-get I get this error msg.

update-initramfs: Generating /boot/initrd.img-2.6.32-5-kirkwood
cp: writing `/tmp/mkinitramfs_hgtqnY/init': No space left on device

Oddly /tmp is listed as Filesystem "overflow"
bailey@sheeva2 -> df -h
Filesystem            Size  Used Avail Use% Mounted on
/dev/mmcblk0p2        1.6G  1.3G  274M  83% /
tmpfs                 252M     0  252M   0% /lib/init/rw
udev                  250M   92K  249M   1% /dev
tmpfs                 252M     0  252M   0% /dev/shm
/dev/mmcblk0p1        149M   22M  120M  16% /boot
overflow              1.0M  1.0M     0 100% /tmp

Normally it would be part of "/"

Any ideas why /tmp has gone astray ?

thx

Ok I found a solution in the Linux questions section of the forum

"update-initramfs error on Debian SID"

Apparently I was missing the uboot-mkimage binary,

# sudo aptitude install uboot-mkimage
