There is only an internal hard-drive, no external disk utility no space left on device storage. Furthermore, I can't access internet anymore from the Mac (maybe because it cannot write the DNS cache?).df -H givesFilesystem Size Used Avail Capacity Mounted On/dev/disk0s3 160G 66G 94G 41% /df -iFilesystem 512-blocks Used Avail Capacity iused ifree %iused Mounted on/dev/disk0s3 312319584 128458520 183349064 41% 16121313 22918633 41%/So, there is plenty of room, plenty of inodes and I precise that there is no quota for the user.

your hard disk and recovering disk space on your hard drive before attempting to repartition Macintosh drives and dual booting. Many folks have been noticing that repartitioning disks using Leopard Disk Utility often fails with an error of "no space left on device", even though there is plenty of space "left on the device". A solution that many have found is removing any "large" files from your Tiger partition before attempting Leopard Disk Utility repartitioning. By large files I'm talking single files that are in the range of 1GB+. Before running off and deleting large files on your hard disk willy nilly, please, make a backup of your Mac hard drive using SuperDuper! (free / donation-ware) or https://discussions.apple.com/thread/1435378?tstart=0 move these large files off to a secondary external hard disk connected via USB or FireWire. If you find that you actually need these files later, you can always move them back or revert to your complete backup you made to an external drive. A great program that helps with finding and moving / removing large files on your disk is Disk Inventory X. Disk Inventory X generates a visual file map of your disk like the one displayed here. Click http://installingcats.com/no-space-left-on-device-error/ on the large squares and rectangles to inspect the details of the files. The usual suspects that you can get rid of safely include scratch disks such as the Photoshop scratch disk and the Apple safe sleep memory image. This safe sleep / hibernate memory file takes the contents of your physical RAM and copies it to disk (in a single file) so that your Mac can "hibernate" for an indefinite period, with or without power, without losing what you were working on. The downside of this is that it creates a file equal the size of your physical memory. That can be anywhere from 1GB to 4GB for Macbook users. The skinny on how to get rid of this sleep image file: First find your current sleep setting by entering this in a Terminal window: pmset -g | grep hibernatemode That should return you something like "hibernatemode 3". Remember this number, send an email to yourself, write it down on a scratch pad, whatever it takes to remember your default mode. Mode 3 keeps your RAM powered during sleep to allow super fast wake-up, but also writes an image file of all memory onto disk in case power is lost. To change the hibernate safe sleep setting to not create an image file on the disk, i.e. mode 0 (mode zero, not the letter ‘o'), enter the following in a Terminal window: sudo pmset -a hibernatemode 0 Enter your password when as
this issue This error is pretty self-explanatory — there is not enough "space" on your computer or wherever you are running the game from for storing information. Minecraft requires at least 200MB for the core game and other files; more may no space be needed if you have large worlds. To clear disk space, try uninstalling rarely used applications and removing unused files. Alternatively, you can move Minecraft off onto another hard disk. Clearing disk space If you are on Windows, please see no space left this guide by Microsoft on using "Disk Cleanup", a tool for clearing up your hard disk: http://windows.microsoft.com/en-us/windows/delete-files-using-disk-cleanup If you are on Mac OS X, there's a great guide here: http://reviews.cnet.com/8301-13727_7-57604426-263/tips-for-freeing-space-on-your-macs-boot-drive/ Moving Minecraft to another HDD If you wish to move Minecraft elsewhere instead, the follow instructions will tell you how to do so. Open the launcher, and select "Edit Profile". You should see the Game Directory checkbox. Check that option, and put the directory you want Minecraft to save the worlds to there. Save and launch the game as normal. This will only move the resource pack folder and the saves folder over; the game and launcher files will not be moved over. Need more help?
