Description of problem:
While trying to gather more information for bug #174244 I tried to install all packages (even all language options) that are available on the FC5T2 install CDs/DVD. At some point during the install process the installer crashes.
The last package that is installed before is linuxwacom-0.7.0-2. Then a popup box opens up and showing "Installation is being prepared / Installation wird vorbereitet". This seems to be at the point when the installer tries to access CD5. After some seconds a new box pops up: "Error running transaction. There was an error running you transaction, probably a desc space problem. For now, exiting on this although we should diagnose and then let you go back."
The disc has lots of space remaining and I've also checked the CD and DVD checksums. The problem occured reproducible when installing via NFS from the 5 CD images and trying a local DVD install.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. try a FC5T2 install with ALL packages selected
Can you switch to tty3 and see if there's a more verbose error message?
Yet another click-athlon on the package selection screen (Hint, hint: The
"Everything" button should be back).
These are the last messages that appear on tty3:
