Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 122
Last modified: 2008-05-01 11:37:48 EDT
Red Hat Server V5.2 requires 256mb for / and /var and 512mb
for /usr and /home. In Section 2.7.5 the stated sizes are
too small. You may want to update this section to reflect
A year ago I started with V5.0 and followed the directions
in the "How Many Partitions?" section. I created /, /var,
/usr, and /home partitions. I did a full install. I was able
to successfully upgrade to V5.1, but the V5.2 upgrade fails
because I don't have enough disk space in my /var partition.
You may want to put a warning someplace in the
PS. Make a Doumentation "component" for Bugzilla!
I have verified that the documentation in the manual needs to be more
clear on the different sizing issues as related to server installs
versus custom installs. The server install requires partitions to be a
fixed size where as the custom option allows you to make partitions of
smaller sizes depending on what the user wants.
Has documentation resolved this in the latest iteration of the
installation manual? If so, please close this bug.

We've done a bit of a re-write on this section. That, in conjunction
with RPM's new disk space tracking hopefully mean that this issue will
no longer be a problem...
