I have this problem with single-installer suite on a PowerPC based Linux on iSeries. The script I used is generic Unix native executable for media spanning purpose. I ran the installShield generic Unix script as root and supplied the temp dir (is:tempdir ...) that has at least 7Gigs. The following is the error message I got.

The directory /people/wpu/tmp/istemp1053083114907
does not contain enough space to extract temporary files.
Please specify a temporary directory using the -is:tempdir
option. Use the -is:help option for more information.

The entire program is no more than 50mb.
Please advise.
Thanks

What is the output of "df -P"?

The error message from the script was incorrect. I log the output. There REAL error was it could find the right JVM.

df gave me 7 gigs for the temp directory.

Thanks.

That was "COULD NOT" not "could".
The script couldn't find the right JVM, but output a incorrect error message.
Sorry for that mistake.

Thanks

So, are you saying that the script should have been outputting a "JVM not found" message but was instead outputting a "not enough temp space" message?

Yes.

Does this only happen on Linux on iSeries? Can you reproduce it on x86 Linux? I am wondering if this issue is particular to Linux on iSeries or not.

Thanks for any info.
