Error Uploading to Edison

Error Uploading to Edison

My Edison seems to be successfully connected to XDK, but when I try to do an install/build the "Onboard LED Blink" sample, I get this error:

Clean and Build project. This may take a few minutes.
Fetching packages using NPM: Installing
UPLOADING: Uploading project bundle to IoT device.
ERROR:Error extracting update - Error: Command failed: x node_modules/
x icon.png: Write failed
x main.js: Write failed
x package.json: Write failed
x Write failed
x test4.xdk: Write failed
x test4.xdke: Write failed
bsdtar: Error exit delayed from previous errors.

Also, when I try to make sure MRAA and UPM libraries are loaded with this instruction:

echo "src maa-upm" > /etc/opkg/intel-iotdk.conf

I get this error:

"sh: write error: No space left on device"

Does anyone have any ideas?

Most likely your Edison partition has run out of disk space. 

You can check from your Edison console by running the command "df -h /"

It will show 100% used. If that's the case, please clean the logs under /var/log/journal directory. 

We are working towards providing auto clear the logs. But in the meanwhile you can manually do it.

Go to /var/log/journal directory. Run "du -sh *", it will show you bunch of directories. 

Remove all or some of them to create more disk space.

use rm -rf * to clean all the directories under journal. Do not remove journal directory.






Yes, that was the problem.  All OK now after removing all directories under /var/log/journal.



Using Intel galileo Gen2... /dev/root 100% usage

there is no directory /var/log/journal directory ... where and how to clean the disk space..?



I recommend running the following command in an attempt to free up space.

rm -rf /var/tmp
