Default dpkg: error,processing /var/cache/apt/archives/ia32-libs-gtk_2.5_amd64.deb,(--unpack):

While trying to install acroread from debian-multimedia, I got the above
error with the suggestion to try again with the -f option. The result
of that is:

If the "No space left on device" means what I think it does, I'm
confused. This is a new install with lots of room on the disk. 2.1GB

The question is how do I clean up the mess? Right now, I'm unable to
remove or install anything (apt) as any attempt recalls this error. I'm
not averse to simply re-installing the dist, but would rather know how I
got into the mess in the first place, and what to do about it.

Learn reading. ;-) The offending file lives is in /emul, i.e. on the
root partition, not in /usr.

So you have less than 250 Megabyte for the root partition. With today's
big kernels that is pretty tight.

Try to remove old kernels, that should give you back some space. But in
the long run you may need to increase the root filesystem to prevent the
error from reoccuring.

Yes, that's annoying. There is already a bug filed about it:

I was fooled by the ./, assuming (wrongly, it seems) that the current
directory was /var or possibly /usr. This is my first look at a 64bit
machine, and was not ready for a 32bit emulation under /.

Repartitioning, and giving / a GB seems to have done the job. Thanks
for pointing out the /emul directory. It's one I was completely unaware of.
