User tip:  On the "Min Profile" build, increase the value of:  TMPFS_SIZE

The default value for TMPFS_SIZE is 512k.   "1024k" would work just fine.

 

It's defined in the file:   /etc/rc.d/rc.conf

 

It looks like /var/lib/rpm is hogging up all the space in there:

Discovered the problem when I tried installing boa, and boa didn't work properly, so started poking around, and eventually figured out that there was no room left on /var.
