Description jszada 2001-02-01 21:43:44 UTC
I attempt to install the entire Red Hat package. At the end of installing 
the last package, I receive the following lines, with a message that this 
is a bug that should be reported to bugzilla. Here it is:

Traceback  (innermost last)

File "/var/tmp/anaconda-7.0.1/usr/lib/anaconda/iw/progress_gui.py" 
line 20 in run
     rc = self.todo.doinstall ()

File "/var/tmp/anaconda-7.0.1/usr/lib/anaconda/todo.py", line 1189, 
     os.symlink(device, self.instPath + "/dev/" + cdname)

OSError: [Errno 28] no space left on device

Make sure your '/' partition is at least 100M in size.

Comment 2 jszada 2001-02-02 04:30:09 UTC
The suggestion to insure 100mgs in the "/" directory worked.  What disturbed me 
was the fact that that info was not contained anywhere in the documentation for 
installation. Anyway, it is installed, and I thank you for your asssistance.

Comment 3 Michael Fulbright 2001-02-06 20:30:44 UTC
Glad that it helped. I have put a message in the Fisher beta which notified the
user if / seems to be too small.
