I've long been in the habit of updating my wife's machine
downstairs over ssh. As on my own (hers and all of mine running
Fedora 7), I do yum clean all, rpm --rebuilddb, updatedb, and
finally yum update.
Suddenly I get screensful of messages from yum, saying of
one package after another, " Insufficient space in download
directory //var/cache/yum/updates/packages to download"
But I also see this :
[root at localhost updates]# cd
[root at localhost ~]# ls -l /var/cache/yum/updates/packages
[root at localhost ~]#
What has happened? What do I do about it?
