    No space left on device compilation terminated

    Hi,
    I am compiling my C++ program with g++ on a server and receive out of space error:
    feature_generation.cc:65: fatal error: error writing to /tmp/ccnrfgcA.s: No space left on device
    compilation terminated.
    feature_count.cc:76: fatal error: error writing to /tmp/cckf2zK1.s: No space left on device
    compilation terminated.
    ...
    Does it mean that the usage in /tmp is full? Is this problem for the whole server or only for my account? What can I do to free up space so that I can compile my program?
    Thanks and regards!

    Yes.

    It might be either. Who's the sysadmin?

    If you do an 'ls -l /tmp', do you see a lot of old (and large) files?
    /tmp should be cleared by a cron job every day

    If your .s file is that large, how big is the source file?

    If at first you don't succeed, try writing your phone number on the exam paper.

    Perhaps 'du' then, to see what's beneath those dirs.

    Even the most recent is 2 days old - you could manually get rid of them yourself.

    Thanks.
    How to do that specifically?

    I remember yesterday I took 5 hours to upload a 3GB iso file to my account. Is it relevent?

    I didn't see any files very big as here

    A lot easier. Try (as earlier suggested):
    du -m /tmp

    also, type df.

    du /tmp
    I guess

    Then (if you're not doing anything)
    rm -r /tmp/*

    Or more cautiously remove everything older than a day
    find /tmp -mtime +1 -exec rm {} \;

    It might be.

    Code:
    {}

    Try removing those 16 MB files. I can't imagine it would matter. Even if it did; rebooting would clear temp, fixing problems caused by this should there be any.
    In fact; you may simply reboot the computer and retry.

    That is, on most distros.
