Space problem installing XAMPP on new Debian installation

Postby shamrock » 15. January 2013 20:44

Hi all,

I have installed Debian version 6.0 on a PC and I have downloaded the 1.8 release of XAMPP - the full 81 MB version.
When I try to install to my Debian machine using the command "tar xvfz xampp-linux-1.8.1.tar.gz -C /opt" from the download directory, the tar extraction process runs out of space on the /dev/sda1 device.
I reinstalled Debian again, clean, and tried to allocate more space to /dev/sda1 but it is already at the max size allowed.
It ran out of space again.
There is plenty of room on the HDD (300GB drive) but unfortunately /dev/sda1 is restricted to 342MB.

Can anyone help me with this please?

Thank you
shamrock

OK I solved it.
When installing Debian, there are a number of options for divvying up the HDD.
The only one that works for XAMPP installation is the option to carve the disk up as one large volume. Option number 1.

Great, I am glad you got it figured out.

Here's a link about re-allocating filesystem space on Linux I was coming in to post - I saw your problem earlier.

Good Luck to all
