Description of problem:
I'm used to do this in my /etc/fstab (for ssd's => wearlevel)
tmpfs /var/tmp tmpfs defaults,nosuid,nodev,noexec,mode=1777,size=2% 0 0
Doing so one an box with only 2 GB RAM causes errors during kernel install, e.g. initramfs creation caused by unsufficient disk space.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. put the above entry for /var/tmp in fstab
2. remount /var/tmp
3. install kernels on a box with 2 GB RAM only [*].
during kernel update via dnf update/install kernel errors during initramfs creation and box doesn't boot with this kernel !
dracut should check needed space before generating initramfs ! and NOT running into errors during kernel installs or an unbootable box regarding this new installed kernel [**]
box, which I remote administer, was bought years ago with 2 modules a 2 GB.
One module has somehow disappeared !
I'm not sure if the user will be aware of this errors using packagekit (gnome-software) - I don't use it - .

more recent Fedora release includes newer upstream software that fixes
bugs or makes them obsolete.
