Doing an installation via Graphical Interface of the Disk 1 of Red Hat
Linux Binnaries, issued with the SmartCertifyDirect Linux system Admin
course: Installation gets to end and tells me I don't have enough space
to install all the packets, I'm missing 41 megs.
I am assigning my own mount point for the files: /mnt.
The system returns the bug report that follows:
Traceback (innermost last):

As I understand, the steps you took were:
- configured packages/etc
- got to screen which says 'you need more space'
- went back to adjust partitioning
- went forwards and saw this message.
Is this correct?
In answer to your questions the answer is "Yes."
To clarify even further I was trying to load the linux kernel on a DOS
partition and not create a Linux partition.
I hope this helps out.
I think if you make the original space for linux large enough you will not
encounter this problem. I will look into fixing the case which is giving you
trouble as well.
Related to bug 16686.
Were you able to use the workaround?
