I recently got a new computer - Dell 7920, which is one beast of a workstation. I can take a pair of 28 core CPUs and 3 TB RAM, but mine is much more modest. I'm setting this up, and made an error in putting my home directory on /, rather than the file system /export/home which I had created - I am so used to using /export/home on Solaris, I wanted to stick with it. Anyway, I run out of disk space [drkirkby@duck ~]$tail results.txt Errno: 28, No space left on device [Sun Jan 24 06:28:01 2021] Unable to create PRP save file: p110068781 Errno: 28, No space left on device [Sun Jan 24 06:51:19 2021] Unable to create PRP save file: p110068781 Errno: 28, No space left on device [Sun Jan 24 07:21:19 2021] Unable to create PRP save file: p110068781 Errno: 28, No space left on device mprime is still running, using all 8 cores - I can't afford 56 cores! Now mprime has some disk space, will it just start saving the files it was unable to before, or would the fact mprime run out of disks space screw up the calculations?

The errors should simply stop appearing. As long as it is passing the Gerbicz error checks every million iterations, you are good to go. 2021-01-26, 00:13 #3 storm5510 Random Account Aug 2009 1,987 Posts Quote:  Originally Posted by drkirkby I recently got a new computer - Dell 7920, which is one beast of a workstation.

Anyway, I run out of disk space New or new-to-you? I looked at the specs for this on Dell's website. The smallest mechanical HD is 500GB. A 250GB SSD is also an option. 1GB and 2GB spinners are the others. Whatever you have stored on this, it seems like you need to move a lot of it off. An external drive would be a good option... 2021-01-26, 07:31 #4 LaurV Romulan Interpreter "name field" Jun 2011 Thailand 24×613 Posts Quote:  Originally Posted by storm5510 1GB and 2GB spinners When you want to show off... 2021-01-26, 15:52 #5 storm5510 Random Account Aug 2009 1,987 Posts Quote:  Originally Posted by LaurV When you want to show off...

Oh well... 2021-02-12, 08:41 #6 drkirkby "David Kirkby" Jan 2021 Althorne, Essex, UK 26·7 Posts Quote:  Originally Posted by storm5510 New or new-to-you?

Whatever you have stored on this, it seems like you need to move a lot of it off. An external drive would be a good option... It is a Dell reconditioned unit. What happened was I created a file system /export/home/ and wanted to put my home directory under there when I installed Linux. Unfortunately I had not noticed that$HOME was on the root file system, which is quite small.

It has a mix of disks
256 GB NVMe for Windoze (that is what it came with)
512 GBNVME for Linux

1 GB SSD for another version of Linux
4 TB hard disk for another version of Linux
