Pardon me, but what's not clear about the message?  "No space left on
device" is pretty self explanatory.

	df -k

And check where /var/log would be under (partition wise).

If that's not it, check your inodes.

	df -i

ASCII logging is bad, MmmmKay?  :)  Log to binary and save your self tons
of sillyness.
