Low on space in /run
In a post on Ask Ubuntu, korrident suggested a possible workaround:
mount command to the
mount -t tmpfs tmpfs /run -o remount,size=85M
Make sure that the script will "
exit 0" on success or any other value on error. (Excerpt from the file.)
I do not think that increasing the size of /run is necessary, but in case you do need to increase it try editing your /etc/fstab file. All mountpoints and most partitions are listed there. If your /run partition is a tmpfs(which it should be, at least according to https://askubuntu.com/questions/57297/why-has-var-run-been-migrated-to-run, I would confirm before following these instructions) then you can simply change the fstab line of your /run mount to something akin to the following:
none /dev/shm tmpfs defaults,size=8G 0 0
See how the size is declared right after
defaults? Try doing that. You can use megabytes as well by using M:
none /dev/shm tmpfs defaults,size=100M 0 0
Reboot the computer after this and the changes should take place.
Edit: Scratch that, looks like Ubuntu creates the
run partition using files in /etc/init and /etc/init.d and not via fstab. You'd have to look through those files and find the mount command that it uses to create
run and edit it manually. I don't have a box to test this on right now, but try running this:
find /etc/init* -type f | xargs grep "mount"
find /etc/init* -type f | xargs grep "run"
If it's being mounted via a bash script then this should find the file and line that does the mounting.
Temporary increase tmpfs filesystem
vi or any text editor of your choice,
2) Locate the line of
/dev/shm and use the tmpfs size option to specify your expected size,
e.g. 512MB: tmpfs /dev/shm tmpfs defaults,size=512m 0 0 e.g. 2GB: tmpfs /dev/shm tmpfs defaults,size=2g 0 0
mount -o remount /dev/shm
