From Bugzilla Helper: User-Agent: Mozilla/4.0 (compatible; MSIE 5.5; Windows 98) On a Sony Vaio F270 which had a working RH6.2 upgrade aborts. When I tried to do a new install, has the same problem. Reproducible: Always Steps to Reproduce: 1. Start with a Sony Vaio with disk partitioned, 60M for root, 1.5G for /usr, 118M for swap. Win 98 is the first partition on disk. 2. install from CD 3. Actual Results: [Install aborts and saved dump onto floppy. System reboots. The following is anaconda's dump... Traceback (innermost last): File "/var/tmp/anaconda-7.0.1//usr/lib/anaconda/iw/progress_gui.py", line 20, in run rc = self.todo.doInstall () File "/tmp/updates/todo.py", line 1638, in doInstall self.createCdrom() File "/tmp/updates/todo.py", line 1189, in createCdrom os.symlink(device, self.instPath + "/dev/" + cdname) OSError: [Errno 28] No space left on device Local variables in innermost frame: device: hdc list: ['hdc'] self: <todo.ToDo instance at 8451b98> cdname: cdrom count: 1 ToDo object: (itodo ToDo p1 (dp2 S'method' p3 (iimage CdromInstallMethod p4 (dp5 S'progressWindow' p6 <failed> Expected Results: Successful install Installed components were trimmed down to 500M or so, still doesn't work. Installed components were basically just kernel, x, network client, no multimedia, no programming tools. Tried to use the anaconda patch (anaconda update disk (RHBA-2000-084)), has same behavior.

You need at least 100M, 150M is better, for the '/' partition. The next version of the installer will display a warning about this.
