thanks Kevin,

that seems to have did the trick. the deal on my server is that tmp,
/var/tmp, and /usr/tmp are all linked to one directory. this required me to
create /home/httpd/tmp and point to it because the disk for all
the other tmp stuff is quite full. time for bigger drives.


ps: in the process of following your suggestion i found another problem and
fixed it, so thanks again!

View the HTML source for the error page - the Python traceback contained
in there will be more helpful. However, the last time I had an IOError
while re-indexing a ZCatalog was when Python was ran out of space in the
/tmp dir (4600 objects, 100 MB /tmp partition). What I did was edit
Python's file (contained at /usr/lib/python1.5/
on Debian systems) from:

attempdirs = ['/usr/tmp', '/tmp', pwd]


attempdirs = ['/var/tmp', '/usr/tmp', '/tmp', pwd]
