Systemctl error no space left on device

Hello,

I've recently started to see this error message when I try to use sytemctl to start a service (any service).
Quote:
[root@localhost ~]# systemctl start httpd.service
Error: No space left on device
^C
[root@localhost ~]# systemctl start postgresql.service
Error: No space left on device
Job failed. See system journal and 'systemctl status' for details.

I've read people mention SELinux, I've tried the above both with SELinux disabled & permissive. I have no issue with free space, so I'm not sure what the true problem is here :| so any help would be appreciated.

Re: Systemctl error no space left on device

You may be running out of inodes instead of actual disk space.

Try running df -i and see what your inode usage is.

Re: Systemctl error no space left on device

Did you enable quotas?

Re: Systemctl error no space left on device

my next thought is a corrupted filesystem.

reboot, and when the grub menu comes up, hit "e" to edit your kernel line. On the end of the line that starts with linux /vmlinux- just add the parameter fsck.mode=force then boot your machine. It should force a filesystem check when it boots, before remounting your root filesystem read/write.

Re: Systemctl error no space left on device

Adding the fsck check to the kernel line did run the check, but didn't fix the problem :[
However, I have had this exact same issue for quite some time.. http://forums.fedoraforum.org/showthread.php?t=277866 >.> I've just always been to Ctrl+D to continue out of it and the system has seemed to work fine. In finding that thread, though, I *believe* I was able to fix that issue and will see if the problem has been resolved (there were TONS of errors :-X )

Update: the problem persists. :[

Re: Systemctl error no space left on device

This is probably due to inotify running out of resources to watch directories.

I can't post the solution to the forum because the variable name contains a banned word, but look at the Crashplan support page.
