ITEM: RTA000027864



QUESTION:                                                                       
I get the following message when I run ls -lpg                                 
                                                                                
pg: 0652-121 Cannot create the temporary file.                                  
I have looked at the filesystem space and it seems ok                           
more works vi works.  What else do I need to check interms of file              
systems or permissions.                                                         
                                                                                
---------- ---------- ---------- --------- ---------- ----------                
A: I have tested this, and have been able to reproduce the error                
by removing the file /var/tmp and the symbolic link to /var/tmp,                
/usr/tmp.  The reason for the error is that the command "pg" uses               
the directory /var/tmp as a temporary scratch pad.  Without the                 
directory, or the symbolic link, the "pg" command will fail with the            
error you reported.                                                            
                                                                                
To correct the problem, log onto the RISC System/6000 as root,                  
and execute the following commands:                                             
                                                                                
   # mkdir /var/tmp  (if AIX reports back that the directory exists,            
                      that is okay)                                             
                                                                                
   # ln -s /var/tmp /usr/tmp                                                    
                                                                                
This should correct the problem.
