Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 182508
Upgrade from rawhide fails with "probably disk space issues"
Last modified: 2007-11-30 17:11:24 EST
Description of problem:
Attempting to resurrect my dead rawhide iBook (failed after an update a few
weeks ago), I thought I'd just upgrade to test3. I originally had 2 GB free and
then made it 3.8 GB with the rescue CD from today (2006-02-22). Both amounts of
free disk space resulted in the install failing with the "this is probably
caused by disk space issues" error.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Test3 ppc boot ISO.
Steps to Reproduce:
1. boot from FC5t3 boot.iso
2. install via NFS
3. upgrade from previous rawhide (sometime in early February 2006)
Install doesn't fail.
Can you go to tty3/tty4 and see what the actual error message is. Please note
rawhide - FC5 upgrades are not supported only upgrades from previous releases
are supported (eg FC4 to FC5T3 or FC4 to FC5)
Well, I managed to get my stuff off the machine with the rescue CD from today
(2006-02-22) and just installed it fresh instead of trying to upgrade. I guess
that's the end of that ...
