http://stackoverflow.com – I have installed postgres 8.4.9 database in my fedora core 14 and deployed an application. It was working fine until today before I tried to restart the system. Now I am unable to start the pgsql. When I am trying to start I am getting the following error FATAL: could not write lock file "postmaster.pid": No space left on device I googled but was not able to find the solution for this issue. Could someone please help in solving this issue? This is the output of df -kh command: Filesystem Size Used Avail Use% Mounted on /dev/vda 9.9G 9.5G 0 100% / tmpfs (HowTos)
