Description Marc Mendez 2006-06-04 08:32:17 EDT
Description of problem:
Trying to update my system with the following filesystems:
Filesystem            Size  Used Avail Use% Mounted on
/dev/hda3             3.9G  275M  3.5G   8% /
/dev/hda2             244M  9.4M  222M   5% /boot
tmpfs                 252M     0  252M   0% /dev/shm
/dev/hda6             9.9G  6.3G  3.1G  68% /home
/dev/hda9             487M   28M  434M   7% /tmp
/dev/hda8              12G  3.8G  7.1G  35% /usr
/dev/hda10            532M  131M  375M  26% /var

/var has been filled by package updates causing yum to crash.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
$ rpm -q yum

How reproducible:
Fill the /var filesystem, then try to update.

Additional info:
Should check the space size available and/or be configurable. Error message did
not explicitly precise that the destination FS was full.
Let me know if you need a dump.
Comment 1 Marc Mendez 2006-06-04 08:38:01 EDT
OK, I checked. That's configurable, but should be checked or exception should be
Comment 2 Seth Vidal 2006-06-04 15:54:56 EDT
actually this one is a problem and the config option doesn't solve that one.

There's a mention of the need to fix the downloading rpm bit in the code and
it'll get fixed up before long.

Comment 4 Seth Vidal 2007-08-03 15:27:56 EDT
Looking at the download code since this time I'm pretty sure this is fixed. All
destinations are checked for available space before downloaded.
