Description of problem:
Currently running a fully updated FC1 install, trying to use yum to
upgrade to FC2 test1. Command used to attempt upgrade = 'yum upgrade'.

yum states the upgrade requires 538MB on /. There is currently 1.1gig
available but yum stops with the error:

Errors installing:
('installing package kernel-source-2.6.1-1.65 needs 38MB on the /
filesystem', (9, '/', 38875136L))
('installing package gnome-session-2.5.3-1 needs 538MB on the /
filesystem', (9, '/', 563412992L))

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. change yum.conf to point to new test1 repository
2. manually upgrade fedora-release package
3. yum upgrade
4. answer y to package changes

Actual Results:  Error, not enough disk space. Space is available.

Expected Results:  Upgrade from FC1 to FC2 test1.

Additional info:

I tried this with the FC1 yum version, and the FC2 test1 version.

The message says "needs", as in requires 538MB additional
to what already exists.

Comment 2 Patrice Dumas 2004-08-18 21:35:44 UTC
I had the same experience (yum needing space although there was plenty
left), and then I updated piecewise, with

$ yum update 'a*' 'b*' 'c*' 'd*' 'e*' 'f*' 'g*' 

and so on, it worked and I still have space left.

I reported it to the yum list, but seth said that it is a bug in rpm
that don't report the right space.
