In our current install guide, we call out a minimum space requirement for /tmp of 2g.

In the next release, this will be increased to 4g.


If you cannot allocate that space to /tmp, here is a workaround that will allow you to change the tempdir for CAPC.

CAPC 2.7 and up.

After the install has finished, stop the services (they start automatically)

And then you may edit each of the following files:






Add this entry, pointing to your new tempdir.

The directory used in the files must exist.<new tempdir of choice>


restart all services.

You are now using the new tempdir.

Additional Information:

You can ignore the nonfatalerror for ribcache during install.


This is caused by low space in /tmp.
