Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 123757
Install Fails with Disk full installing Open Office
Last modified: 2007-11-30 17:10:42 EST
Description of problem:
When Installing Core 2 and select the OpenOffice packages the
installer stated the file sizes with 355M instead of 35M. This caused
the installer to fail as it thought there was not enough disk space.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Install or Reinstall Fedora Core 2 and Select OpenOffice
This may be a general error but OpenOffice was the package I noticed
I had a very similar problem -- I was performing an upgrade on a FC1
install and the installer complained that the disk was full (even
though it was not at all near full). FC1 was the only OS on the disk,
and the partitions were created initially by that FC1 install, from a
completely empty, brand new disk, but when I performed the FC2
upgrade, it complained that the partition information was wrong.
I don't know what accounts for the upgrade failing and complaining
about the disk being full, but perhaps it was something about FC2
having a bug recognizing the partition information?
In any case, performing a clean install on that same machine using the
same media worked fine.
The file size is 35M, but the expanded size is 355M
