help on formatdb core dump

Your root file system is full.  This is probably where your system's
temporary space is allocated.  Delete some stuff, especially from /tmp
and /var/tmp, and try again.

You may be more successful if you set your TMPDIR environment variable
to point to a directory on your large /data1 file system prior to
rerunning BLAST.  This should direct BLAST to place its temporary files
there, which might help.
