Description firstname.lastname@example.org 2008-04-18 11:19:32 EDT
Description of problem: During installation of Fedora 9 (from the Fedora 9 - Preview DVD) anaconda crashed. It occurred during the installation of the texlive-texmf-fonts-2007-20.fc9.noarch package. I'm attaching the debugging report. Additional info: This was not a default installation. I chose to modify what packages I wanted added during the installation. Also, I had problems opening the attached file. Vi and Nano seemed to work fine, however.

Comment 2 Jeremy Katz 2008-04-18 11:36:24 EDT
How big of a /tmp did you specify?
Comment 3 firstname.lastname@example.org 2008-04-18 11:43:48 EDT
Oooo... I hadn't thought about that being a problem. I'm testing a "secure" installation of F9 here and I only gave /tmp about 100MB (based on what I saw I was using previously). What should that number be?
Comment 4 Chris Lumens 2008-04-18 12:10:11 EDT
Okay, we'll just use /var/cache/yum for this stuff instead.
Comment 5 Alain Portal 2008-04-19 09:23:54 EDT
I don't know if this is relevant or not, but I could see in my anacdump.txt (See https://bugzilla.redhat.com/show_bug.cgi?id=443225) .... Installation de libgdiplus-devel-1.9-4.fc9.i386 Installation de texlive-texmf-fonts-2007-20.fc9.noarch No such file or directory error: %post(texlive-texmf-fonts-2007-20.fc9.noarch) scriptlet failed, exit status 1 Installation de selinux-policy-3.3.1-35.fc9.noarch Installation de avahi-devel-0.6.22-10.fc9.i386 .... Hope this help.

Can someone verify this fix?
Comment 7 Shawn Starr 2008-05-01 23:52:32 EDT
If we now set /var to 100MB it will fail with same msg (except different mount point) However, Anaconda warns is /var is less than 384MB this seems still too small with the default package selections alone. Maybe mark this now as WONTFIX because if you want to shoot yourself in the foot, you just wasted 10-15 minutes to see it fail :-)
Comment 8 Jeremy Katz 2008-05-02 15:24:27 EDT
Yep, that's the idea. We do as much as we really can here. And 100 megs may be fine, it depends on your package set.
