Created attachment 811095 [details]

The kickstart below won't proceed past the summary hub in 20-Beta-TC1, using yum payload.

What I see on the screen is: "Not enough space in filesystems for the current software selection. An additional 1 GB is needed."

Attaching the anaconda.log, it's full of:

13:11:48,731 INFO anaconda: fs space: 2 GB  needed: 3 GB

lines, but only 0.9 GB is needed for @Core.

Comment 1 Vratislav Podzimek 2013-10-17 10:17:07 EDT
The issue here is that in kickstart installations, software selection is checked (dependency solving and required space calculation) right before the actual installation process, i.e. after the Summary hub is left. So the Summary hub's check for required space uses the default value (3 GB) for required space.

I'm not sure how easy or hard it will be to move software selection check to the Summary hub for kickstart installations, though.

Comment 4 Fedora End Of Life 2016-07-19 06:28:50 EDT
Fedora 22 changed to end-of-life (EOL) status on 2016-07-19. Fedora 22 is
no longer maintained, which means that it will not receive any further
security or bug fix updates. As a result we are closing this bug.

If you can reproduce this bug against a currently maintained version of
Fedora please feel free to reopen this bug against that version. If you
are unable to reopen this bug, please file a new report against the
current release. If you experience problems, please add a comment to this

Thank you for reporting this bug and we are sorry it could not be fixed.
