Description Maxim F. Ischenko 2001-01-13 05:24:44 EST
When I have mounted reiserFS partition RPM fails to install any packages.

$ rpmi xlHtml-
installing package xlHtml- needs 1 inodes on the /usr/src/test

# df -i
/dev/hda10 reiserfs  4.0G       0    3.9G    0% /usr/src/test

# uname -a
Linux localhost.localdomain 2.4.0max #1 Tue Jan 9 16:47:27 EET 2001 i686
ReiserFS version 3.6.25
Comment 1 Jeff Johnson 2001-01-14 12:15:35 EST
reiserfs (and a handful of other "broken" file systems like FAT) do not return 
the number of available inodes. Either add "--ignoresize" to disable disk
space/inode checking, or upgrade to a later version of rpm-4.0.2, where there's
a hack to detect and ignore "broken" file systems. Sorry, I've forgotten
the release number of the package with the "fix", it was 2-3 weeks ago.
