Same issue with:
java version "1.8.0_05"
Java(TM) SE Runtime Environment (build 1.8.0_05-b13)
Java HotSpot(TM) 64-Bit Server VM (build 25.5-b02, mixed mode)
My solution for this problem:
I've searched alot for this solution. In my case on a server someone else configured I was unable to operate fully on /tmp.
Please tell me if you succeeded! Btw, if there is not enough space on the drive containing /tmp it can cause this problem.
steffenschuchardt, you are amazing. I've been banging my head against my desk for a couple of hours over this issue.
I was able to get the installer launched with /tmp2
Thank you so much!!
