You need to expand the filesystem prior to installing Cayenne. Check out this post:

Let me know if you still are seeing issues!



Were you able to expand the filesystem and do a successful install?


According to his disk filesystem output he has 4.7GB available out of 14GB, which is odd because he posted that his SD card size is 8GB. Might have been a typo, or might have been output from the wrong pi?


Changing this to Resolved. The file system needs to be expanded. In near future, we will implement a change to automatically expand the file system if not already expanded.
