Boy this is an Intrepid BOTCH!!!!! For some reason Intrepid sets low
maximum size for all of it's directories. For example, the limit for
the /home/karl/Desktop on Intrepid is less than 699 MB!
I checked the remaning partition space and it is 11+ GB.
So I was d/l the Alternate CD of 8.04 and it was almost there with
just 30 minutes to go and now I look and there is an error message
saying there was too little space to store the file!!!! Sorry it says.
I'm now 2% done with my second d/l of this file to
/home/karl/Desktop/ on Hardy. I expect I have enough space...I always
have for years!
If anyone knows how to measure the size limit on a directory I would
like to know it.
