Recently jailbroke ATV2 tethered 4.4.4 using seas0npass

Used lifehacker method to install XBMC

http://lifehacker.com/5739364/how-to-ins...apple-tv-2

Was having issues with one of the mirrors thought it was timing out, happened to be a typo on my end(face palm). Unfortunately I ran
Code:
apt-get update
several times hoping what I had thought timeout issue would completed. Once I found my error I got all the proper packages though I get this error when trying to
Code:
apt-get install org.xbmc.xbmc-atv2

Code:
Unpacking org.xbmc.xbmc-atv2 (from .../org.xbmc.xbmc-atv2_11.0-0~b1_iphoneos-arm.deb) ...
dpkg: error processing /var/cache/apt/archives/org.xbmc.xbmc-atv2_11.0-0~b1_iphoneos-arm.deb (--unpack):
failed in buffer_write(fd) (7, ret=-1): backend dpkg-deb during `./Applications/XBMC.frappliance/XBMCData/XBMCHome/addons/skin.confluence/media/Textures.xbt': No space left on device
dpkg-deb: subprocess paste killed by signal (Broken pipe: 13)
Errors were encountered while processing:
/var/cache/apt/archives/org.xbmc.xbmc-atv2_11.0-0~b1_iphoneos-arm.deb
E: Sub-process /usr/bin/dpkg returned an error code (1)

I tried cleaning out caches and tmp dirs without luck. When running df -k I get the following:

Code:
Apple-TV:~ root# df -k
Filesystem           1K-blocks      Used Available Use% Mounted on
/dev/disk0s1s1          628424    556688     65456  90% /
devfs                       26        26         0 100% /dev
/dev/disk0s1s2         7153976     75264   7078712   2% /private/var

Not sure where or how to clean out /dev/disk0s1s1 and devfs

Any help would be greatly appreciated.

What version of Seas0nPass are you using? Is it the most recent one? This sounds like a problem that was previously had when iOS 4.4 first came out with Seas0nPass.

Seas0nPass Version 0.7.9 (290)

Would restoring to 4.3(at this point in time) fix this issue?

I am so relieved to find someone else with this problem! With all the people who must be installing XBMC Eden on 4.4 I couldn't understand why no one else had posted to ask how to address this problem.

I have tried flashing with a standard 4.4, then back again with the Seas0nPass but still hit the out of space error when installing XBMC.

Is there a way to tell apt-get to download to a different path, or to use a different location (on the 7gb free partition) to uncompress the install? I guess the ./Applications is unavoidably on the 700mb partition?

For anyone that does have it installed, how much space did you have on disk0s1s1 before and after installing?

I am also running 7.9 of SeasonPass, which is the latest I can download from Firecore and 'Check For Updates' states it is the latest version. Were there any tips or work arounds when this problem was discovered before?

try this:

ssh root@apple-tv
mkdir -p /private/var/Applications
cd /Applications
mv * /private/var/Applications
cd /
rmdir /Applications (This won't delete unless the directory is empty...)
ln -s /private/var/Applications /Applications
cd
apt-get update
apt-get install org.xbmc.xbmc-atv2

Current XBMC Platform: ATV2
Extra XBMC Platform: Raspberry Pi

Brilliant! Thanks Jester.

I had thought that moving some stuff to under /private/var would help, but I didn't know how to really go about it.

Got an exception about Frontrow MD5 not matching and therefore not patching, but the XBMC icon has reappeared on the menu so I'm happy.

Thanks again.
Tony

I've quoted the areas of most concern ... the first one - the command "In -s" is incorrect, you're trying to create a symbolic link, it should be "ln -s" lower case L

The other - "No space left on device" - Normally means your HDD is full
If you type in "df -h" it should show you the used/available space on your partitions

Thanx for the reply. How is my apple tv 2 full of space? What can I do to solve this issue?

From this thread you can look at your addons or from this thread look at the big hitters.

Your problem is with the above command, it's a small L, not a capital I

Given the state of your ATV now it's probably worth re-jailbreaking it and trying again, making sure you don't get any errors after each step
