Subject No space left on device problem when starting Cassandra
Date Wed, 01 Jun 2011 01:28:51 GMT
Hi there, I'm a bit new to Linux and Cassandra so I'm hoping someone can help me with this.

I've been evaluating Cassandra for the last few days and I'm now having a problem starting
up the service.   I receive this error below and I'm unsure on where I'm out of space at,
and how to free up more.

azadmin@cassandra-01: $ sudo /usr/tmp/apache-cassandra-0.7.6-2/bin/cassandra -f

I seem to have enough space, except in the /dev/mapper/Cassandra-01-root, and I'm unsure of
that anyway:
