Description James Manning 2000-06-22 21:02:35 UTC
installer does about all it can, actually... it worries me that / and /tmp 
can have so much (relatively) free and the rebuild fail (later on, when 
there's not enough room for the upgrade, perhaps).  Is the error just not 
clear and this is actually warning about room for the full upgrade?  Or is 
the rebuild being done in the current /tmp where there's not enough room 
instead of /mnt/sysimage/tmp?

Popup says "Rebuild of RPM database failed. You may be out of disk space?" 
then it gave a traceback after hitting "OK" (only button available):

Jeff Johnson's mail to testers-list explains the lack of support for beta1's db
format, explaining my failed upgrades.
