Error with boot: No space left on device
« on: October 28, 2009, 02:00:06 am »

Big problem with my Compaq Evo N600c pentium III, I installed VL6 light on it but when it boots, I get messages on the screen "no space left on device" (multiple errors) after that my it runs my splash-screen but I can't login, even with the good password.
When I hit Enter, the screen turns black for like 2 minutes and then it returns to the splash screen.

help please?

The "no space left on device" message indicates a full hard drive partition.

You may need to change your disk partitioning, or omit some packages during install. One big one is the kernel-source, which you only need if you will be compiling programs.
