  1. Thanks for that Image!Unfortunately, the partition size seems to be to small to iomprt the- mbdump.tar.bz2- mbdump-derived.tar.bz2- mbdump-artistrelation.tar.bz2- mbdump-stats.tar.bz2After 2 hours of iomprting, I get this error:psql://home/mbserver/svn/mb_server/admin/sql/CreateFKConstraints.sql:542: ERROR: could not write to hash-join temporary file: No space left on device.Any idea, how to solve this?
