Shalom,

/tmp needs more disk space or needs to be redirected to a larger filesystem with a value in the variable TMP or TEMP depending on which Oracle release is involved.

It has nothing to do with permissions in most cases.

Re: oracle client installation error

Hi arun,

The Oracle Universal Installer (OUI) requires up to 200mb of space in the /tmp directory. If you do not have enough space in /tmp, set the environment variable TMP, TEMP or TMDIR to point to a directory with sufficient space.

e.g. sh:
TMP=/opt/tmp
export TMP

ksh:
export TMP=/opt/tmp

csh:
setenv TMP /opt/tmp

hope this helps!

kind regards
