I set the install folder to the default in /opt, yet the installer at the end moans:

Installation Directories:
  Product: /opt/coldfusion11
Disk Space Information (for Installation Target):
  Required: 1,872 MB
  Available: 662 MB
Insufficient Disk Space
The installer requires Required: 1,872 MB of disk space to install Adobe 
ColdFusion 11.
You do not have sufficient space to install.

this is despite
# df -h|egrep 'opt|/$'
                      2.0G  1.2G  663M  65% /
                      5.0G  1.9G  2.9G  40% /opt
so it's miss reporting.

It's not possible to continue to install ColdFusion 11 at this point, clearly.

Creating a large tmpfs /tmp or setting IATEMPDIR to a partition with plenty of space doesn't help. Appears to really be looking at the space in / which it shouldn't care about.

You can export IATEMPDIR=D:\tempdir (say) to the Drive which is having Free space,Installer by default searches for a Temp dir in current drive where installation is executing.

@Deepraj Yes, I know. I mentioned this in my original comment. It didn't work.
