I'm trying to install a newer version of cmake on a new server, following the instructions at trying-to-install-arangodb-either-via-rpm-or-from-source, and I'm getting errors any time I try to run the configure step in any of the installers complaining that /tmp/ is full.

This is the specific error message from cmake:

Cannot create temporary file in /tmp/: No space left on device.

My disk space usage in the dashboard appears to only be half full, and I've successfully installed all of this on another account a year ago. Any tips I can use to get past this roadblock?

Thanks, Scott

Your own disk usage is fine, it's the system /tmp drive (which you share with other users) that is the problem.

If it hasn't been resolved yet, then contact WebFaction's support team via the ticket system to let them know which server you're on, and they can sort it out from there.

Also, you can probably work around it yourself by setting your TMPDIR environment variable to point to a local directory, eg:

mkdir ~/tmp
export TMPDIR=$HOME/tmp

Once that's done, your build should use your own local tmp directory instead of the system directory.

Hope that helps!

Thanks @seanf. GMP unfortunately seems to ignore TMPDIR during configuration, however everything seems to be working fine now. I'll create a ticket if I encounter this issue with any of the other dependancies.
