Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 21634
Wrong inode check
Last modified: 2007-04-18 12:30:05 EDT
When I tried to upgrade a package with the newest RPM in rawhide, (i. e.
rpm-4.0.1-0.13) it reported I had not enough free Inodes. As I use reiserfs
(!!) this cannot be true due to the fact that reiserfs has no limitations
in the number of inodes.
(The Problems seems to be that reiserfs returns -1 as the number of free
inodes, maybe the bug is not in rpm but in reiserfs)
FWIW, you are running on unreleased rpm-4.0.1 code, inode checks may be the
least of your
Smells like a reiserfs problem. Work around by adding --ignoresize when
that should disable space/inode checks in rpm.
