OK, well the answer is simple, you do not have enough space on your "/"
drive. 7.0G seems a lot for a linux install, but is not totally
ridiculous. I would say whoever installed the box didn't allocate enough
space for "/". I certainly would not put less than 10G, not because I
can't run with less, but because it forces me to do more maintainance.

Workaround : resize the partitions.
