Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 16214
RFE:Available inodes are not apparently being checked for.

I ran out of inodes on the root partition upgrading beta5 to RC1, resulting
in a hopelessly confused system that will have to be rebuilt. Apparently I
had enough disk space for the installer to start, but not enough inodes.
Now, it seems to me that it's much easier to calculate the required inode
usage than the required disk space usage, so I think that this should be
I think the installer needs to check how many new files will be installed,
and ensure that enough inodes are available.
Added to feature request list.
Moving to RESOVLED - DEFERRED from CLOSED - DEFERRED

We are going to enforce a minimum size for '/' which will workaround this
problem in most cases. We realize we need a better long term solution.
Implemnted minimum size of '/' check (see bug 21029).
RPM checks for this now.
verified fix in qa0217.1 ...
