No problem.  Happens all the time.

I've been trying to locate information about this error and cannot find anything.

Even Oracle Support doesn't seem to have anything that I could find.

I assume Linux and I assume you have followed the per-requisites in the install guide?

I also assume the version of Oracle you are installing is certified with the flavor/version of Linux you are using?

most likely it's not Oracle, but UNIX error

I assume you are installing Oracle on UNIX or Linux?

What version are you installing?

It could be cause by installing oracle on the server with long kernel names, based on what people have said who had this issue in the past

>>No space left on device

Error message seems pretty self-explainitory as well as the provided reason:

Please ensure that this directory is writable and has atleast 60 MB of disk space. Installation cannot continue.

Your /tmp folder doesn't have enough free space.

check permissions on /tmp/OraInstall2013-01-31_08-59-09AM

run

ls - l /tmp/OraInstall2013-01-31_08-59-09AM

Pretty obvious it isn't a permission issue because of the followup message:  No space left on device
