I am trying to install android-studio from the Arch User Repository (AUR). I had an error no space left on the device

Output from the Arch User Repository (AUR) - details

Using the Terminal

➜  ~ df -h
Filesystem                           Size  Used Avail Use% Mounted on
dev                                  3.8G     0  3.8G   0% /dev

Now I clear some space on /tmp

➜  ~ df -h
Filesystem                           Size  Used Avail Use% Mounted on
dev                                  3.8G     0  3.8G   0% /dev
run                                  3.8G  1.3M  3.8G   1% /run
/dev/mapper/AntergosVG-AntergosRoot  102G   91G  6.5G  94% /
tmpfs                                3.8G   63M  3.7G   2% /dev/shm
tmpfs                                3.8G     0  3.8G   0% /sys/fs/cgroup
/dev/sda1                            243M  109M  118M  48% /boot
tmpfs                                3.8G  8.0K  3.8G   1% /tmp
tmpfs                                769M   20K  769M   1% /run/user/1000

Then I tryied to reinstall android-studio but I still have the same error. I don't know why that upon download a 737MB file the building takes 3.8GB. How can I increase the size of my /tmp directory to 4.5GB?

  • Simple answer -- build it in / (probably /home/username) or somewhere where it has more space.

remount /tmp:

# mount -o remount,size=4500M /tmp

  • Just know that this will consume computer's RAM, as /tmp is a tmpfs filesystem (uses RAM to emulate disk).
