I'm getting an error message every week and I can't seem to understand why
nor manage to fix it. Here it is:

pid 54753 (locate.code), uid 65534 inumber 23557 on /tmp: filesystem full

# df -h
Filesystem     Size    Used   Avail Capacity  Mounted on
/dev/ar0s1a    989M     53M    857M     6%    /
devfs          1.0K    1.0K      0B   100%    /dev
/dev/ar0s1g     48G    8.5G     36G    19%    /backup
/dev/ar0s1d    989M     44K    910M     0%    /tmp
/dev/ar0s1f    387G    168G    189G    47%    /usr
/dev/ar0s1e    7.7G    398M    6.7G     5%    /var

As you see there's 910MB free space in /tmp. Should be plenty to run the
weekly locate script?

# uname -a
FreeBSD 6.3-PRERELEASE FreeBSD 6.3-PRERELEASE #5: Sat Jan 12

Does anyone have a suggestion what I can do to fix this problem?

Thanks a lot!
