Description enorris 1998-11-18 14:47:37 UTC
Red Hat Server V5.2 requires 256mb for / and /var and 512mb for /usr and /home. In Section 2.7.5 the stated sizes are too small. You may want to update this section to reflect Section 2.6.2. A year ago I started with V5.0 and followed the directions in the "How Many Partitions?" section. I created /, /var, /usr, and /home partitions. I did a full install. I was able to successfully upgrade to V5.1, but the V5.2 upgrade fails because I don't have enough disk space in my /var partition. You may want to put a warning someplace in the documentation. PS. Make a Doumentation "component" for Bugzilla!

I have verified that the documentation in the manual needs to be more clear on the different sizing issues as related to server installs versus custom installs. The server install requires partitions to be a fixed size where as the custom option allows you to make partitions of smaller sizes depending on what the user wants.

Has documentation resolved this in the latest iteration of the installation manual? If so, please close this bug. ------- Email Received From "Ed Norris, CISSP" <email@example.com> 03/18/99 10:34 -------

We've done a bit of a re-write on this section. That, in conjunction with RPM's new disk space tracking hopefully mean that this issue will no longer be a problem...
