mysqldump: Got errno 32 on write


When trying to do a mysql dump similar to:
mysqldump | gzip > /home/user/whatever/whatever.sql.gz

You get the following error:
mysqldump: Got errno 32 on write

or the following error message:
mysqldump: Got errno 28 on write


OS error code 32 is actually: Broken pipe.
- Make sure both directories /home/user and /home/user/whatever exists.

OS error code 28 is actually: No space left on device.
- Make sure you have enough free disk space.

Affected software:

Linux 2.4.x
Linux 2.6.x
