Previous bug 233391 against test:
Description of problem:
yum miscalculates disk requirements when disk space is low:
Install 0 Package(s)
Update 52 Package(s)
Remove 0 Package(s)
Total download size: 76 M
At least 5732MB needed on the /usr filesystem.
[root] xm-fc7-001 ~]# df -h
Filesystem Size Used Avail Use% Mounted on
1.9G 1.7G 119M 94% /usr
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Run "yum update" with less space than required for updates.
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Run yum update with less space than needed for proper installation
yum reports that Disk Requirements are close to 6Gig whereas the proper number
is about 50M extra needed.
yum disk space number should be correct

*** Bug 233391 has been marked as a duplicate of this bug. ***
rpmlib disk space calculation will never be correct until #209306 is fixed.
If the miscalculation was due to #209306 then it should be fixed in current
rawhide / f8-test1 - can you verify please?
rpm 22.214.171.124 has been pushed to F7 updates which should fix or at least help
considerably. If not, feel free to reopen.
