Hi !

Yesterday I have upgraded from SuSE 11.4 to 12.1 and Thunderbird 10.0.2, and today morning run into unexpected problem. Thunderbird can't download new massages because:
There is not enough disk space to download new messages. Try deleting old mail, emptying the Trash folder, and compacting your mail folders, and then try again.

However, I have more then 250GB free on home partition. Root partition also have a lot of free space. I moved all messages from inbox, cleaned trash and junk folders, compacted all mailboxes, even restarted computer. Nothing helps. Looks like this is Thunderbird bug.

Anyone can suggest how to solve this problem?

Thanks in advance.

PS. Firefox 10.0.2 work fine without any problem.

Thunderbird works fine under 12.1.

Have you emptied your /tmp ( /tmp as in the / directory) [and the /var/tmp] directory?

There appears to be a problem somewhere and these 2 directories are not cleared for some reason as they were in earlier releases of oS.

To clean out /tmp,

do ALT-CTRL-F1 and login as root then do 'init 1' and login as root once again;

do 'rm -rf /tmp/*' which will clean out /tmp;

then do 'init 5' to get back to your logon screen.

See also /etc/sysconfig/cron and set the appropriate parameters to keep /tmp and /var/tmp cleaned by cron.


I'd rather live one more day as a wolf than an entire life as a lamb.
