From Bugzilla Helper:
User-Agent: Mozilla/4.76 [en] (X11; U; Linux 2.4.1-0.1.9 i586)

When "not enough space in /usr is reported - it only provides one option =
"OK" and then puts you right back into installing the same packages again -
no escape - endless loop unless you do a Ctrl-C

Reproducible: Always
Steps to Reproduce:
1. establish a not enough space situation
2. hit OK
3. you will be right back where you where before - not enough space.

Actual Results:  endless loop

Expected Results:  Should be given the opportunity to quit or reselect
packages for installation.

We (Red Hat) should really try to resolve this before next release.
Comment 2 Glen Foster 2001-03-02 13:05:59 EST
Our installer team-lead thinks we should really fix this before next release.
