If df -i says that it's 100% full then you have run out of inodes (space for directory entries in effect). There is nothing that you can do about this except remove some files/directories - it is not possible to change the number of inode entries except at mkfs time. The problem can sometimes be caused by something allocating thousands/millions of small - perhaps even empty - files under /tmp or /var/tmp or some other directory (those are just the two most likely).
