Description keith mannth 2003-12-16 16:47:26 EST
From Bugzilla Helper:
User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux i686; en-US; rv:1.0.2)

Description of problem:
  I chose the default partion setup for my disk when installing these
isos.  After the system was installed and booted there was no space
left of the / partions (I will post the df output).  This setup leaves
no space for any /tmp usage or /root usage.  

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Install cds  for i386 AS2.1 beta2 re1201.0 

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1.Install the isos (re1209.0-i386)
2.note the df output. 

Actual Results:    Ther is no space left on the / partition. 

Expected Results:  The default partitions on the system should support
a general usage situation.

Comment 2 Jeremy Katz 2003-12-16 17:10:45 EST
General usage doesn't require huge amounts of space in /tmp or /root
-- users shouldn't be logging in as root and tmp space usage is
minimal in most cases.
Comment 3 keith mannth 2003-12-16 18:43:13 EST
  I beg to differ. 22megs of space in /tmp isn't good.  Some
applications use this space.  Any program which uses this space will
quickly fill it up and cause all kinds of problems (no tmp space == no
application file locks).  Just my thoughts.
