When the XACT 5 install program checks disk space, it stores the free space
as a signed long number. If the number of free bytes on the file system is
greater than or equal to 2**31, the number will become negative, and the install program will think that there is not enough room on the drive. This
occurs sometimes as a result of several physical drvies being combined into
a single logical drive.
To work around this, create a temporary file that is large enough to bring
the total free space under 2 Gbytes. You can check free space by using the
df command (or bdf on HPs). Here's a script that will create a file of n
Megabytes, where n defaults to 10. If you save it as bigfile.csh, then
"bigfile.csh 5" would create a 5 Mbyte file, and "bigfile.csh 500" would
create a 500 Mbyte file. This script may run slow.
set count = 10
if ( $#argv > 0 ) set count = $argv
@ lines = $count * 1000000 / 50
echo " Creating a $count Megabyte file of $lines lines."
set i = 0
while ( $i < $lines )
echo "123456789012345678901234567890123456789" >> bigfile
@ j = ( $i / 100000 ) * 100000
if ( $j == $i ) echo -n "."
ls -algF bigfile
