Description Kamil Páral 2012-12-10 05:02:33 EST
Created attachment 660658 [details] bug demonstration video Description of problem: In the partitioning screen if I hit Continue, I'm warned that I don't have enough space to install Fedora. But when I hit Done, I'm not warned at all and no warning appears even in the main hub screen. When I start the installation, right after my partitions are modified anaconda tells me I don't have enough free space. Watch the attached video. Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable): anaconda 18.37 How reproducible: always Steps to Reproduce: 1. create a single partition on disk leaving about 5 GB free space 2. enter partitioning screen 3. hit Continue, you are warned. Hit Cancel. Hit Done, you are not warned. 4. Start installation. Actual results: disk layout is modified but installation is not complete Expected results: either you are warned in advance, or installation finishes successfully

This is a very nasty bug, proposing as a blocker. Any generic anaconda release criterion should do.
Comment 7 Kamil Páral 2012-12-10 12:55:06 EST
In the video I clicked Continue to illustrate that in that case anaconda checks the size of the installation. But I can reproduce it without problems by just hitting Done right away.

If you try to reuse partitions (move them from Fedora 17 to 18) you get the same error. I wanted to 'upgrade/reinstall' and reuse /boot, / and swap, leaving /home alone. NO SPACE error.

Kamil, can you still reproduce this with some recent image? I've tried Rawhide anaconda and was not able to reproduce it. From git diff I see that the patch for bug #853636 that is only on master and not on f18-branch brought some changes.
Comment 10 Vratislav Podzimek 2012-12-14 07:51:03 EST
If you can reproduce this with a recent image, could you please try using http://vpodzime.fedorapeople.org/space_check_updates.img ? It contains the patch for bug #853636 ported to f18-branch and applies to anaconda-18.37.2-1

Created attachment 663578 [details] 18.37.2 main hub Actually this is fixed with 18.37.2, no updates.img needed. It displays an error in the main hub. The partitioning icon does not include a warning triangle, and I think it should, but this particular issue is solved.

(In reply to comment #11) Also it's worth mentioning that Begin installation can't be clicked. Very good.

Anaconda was pushed stable, closing.
