    Unanswered: ASE 12.5.4 on RHEL

    hi, I am trying to install ASE, i get the following error
    The directory /tmp/istemp4583044142559
    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.

    there is more than enough space on /tmp
    Any idea what the problem can be?

    Hello,

    That event happend to me as well, it means that the sybase installer doesn't have enough space on /tmp to extract its necessary files to launch installation.
    What you have to do is real simple. Since the setup.bin, uses the variable IATEMPDIR.

    So set the environment variable IATEMPDIR to another folder with more space.
    Something like this:

    setenv IATEMPDIR = '[new folder]'
    export IATEMPDIR

    This will work, just choose a device with some free space like 2gb must be enough but the more you have better, and after install you can delete this folder so is just temporary won't affect your space.

    It worked for me.

    Hello Shaun,

    Don't know if you solved it, but here is another solution, that i found.
    This is the syntax in unix, for when default temporary directory does not have enough free space.

    [script] is:tempdir [newdir]

    like so, for example ( choose your dir, with lots of free space):

    SETUP.bin is:tempdir /opt/tmp


    Try it and give me your feedback please, to see if it worked. (im curious)
