Looks like whatever filesystem /tmp/ is on on cvs is full.
[lj@shockmaster cvs]$ cvs -z3 -d:pserver:email@example.com:/home/cvslj co livejournal
can't create temporary directory /tmp/cvs-serv30700
No space left on device
I just updated my site from CVS and the new SendStats.pm perl module was killing my server. In my log file it was simply segfaulting, and I eventually had to run a ktrace on the child processes to find the problem. To fix this issue I had to comment out the lines from modperl.pl that refrenced SendStats.
Now in my setup I dont curretnly need, nor will I need for awhile, load balancing. But it would be nice to be able to have this module working for when I need it. If someome is up for helping me debug this even further I will gladly provide as much info as you like.
