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
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.

df run on the box
this is the df output notice the lack of space in the / partition.
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.
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.
