Cant install unity 3d/ Not enough space on /tmp

Hey guys, I'm trying to install unity 3d trough AUR (unity-editor package) but i get:

cat: write error: No space left on device
bsdtar: Write error
==> ERROR: Failed to create package file.
==> ERROR: Makepkg was unable to build unity-editor.

i think it has something to do with not enough space on /tmp, but i dont know where else to unpack it, (and since im fairly new, i dont think its a good idea to mess with /tmp at all).
If any of you can help I'd be grateful.
Thank you :slight_smile:

See this:

or this, and depending what AUR wrapper/helper you use, replace the yaourt and the place where the new tmp is ...

There are plenty of topics regarding "not enough space in /tmp" in the forum. Just search if this will not help. :wink:


Lots of threads here too:

But if i change BUILDDIR for example, when I update the packages will it work with the ones I've installed before changing?

this: "yaourt -S package --tmp /home/login/" worked!
Thank you both :smiley:
