/boot is 500m by default
Last modified: 2013-10-16 13:47:48 EDT
Anaconda created my /boot as 500m by default. I remember in the past fedora did that and it caused problems. is it enough space, or should it get upped to 1024m. Discuss and then WONTFIX if appropriate.
Fedora currently uses a 500MB /boot. The /boot size changes that have been made were 100MB -> 200MB for F11, since 100MB wasn't enough space anymore for kernels and initrds and such, and 200MB -> 500MB for F13, because preupgrade worked by downloading the full stage2 image into /boot.
fedup/rhelup uses the system's existing software to handle mounting storage, so the initrd it uses is much smaller and the preupgrade size requirement isn't a concern anymore. 500MB as default should be plenty for a while.
