hi,

how can i view disk space for /tmp directory. When I did df -h, I got the following. Does this mean, that the /tmp directory is on /dev/sda7 ?

/dev/sda7              31G   13G   18G  41% /
none                  1.9G  288K  1.9G   1% /dev
none                  1.9G  184K  1.9G   1% /dev/shm
none                  1.9G   80K  1.9G   1% /var/run
none                  1.9G     0  1.9G   0% /var/lock
none                  1.9G     0  1.9G   0% /lib/init/rw
/dev/sda3             485M   44M  416M  10% /boot

no , it means you have 18GB for all directories under the root directory
if course you can copy approximately 18GB to /tmp and it will take it all ....
