On a Sony Vaio F270 which had a working RH6.2 upgrade aborts. When I tried
to do a new install, has the same problem.
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Start with a Sony Vaio with disk partitioned, 60M for root, 1.5G
for /usr, 118M for swap. Win 98 is the first partition on disk.
2. install from CD
Actual Results: [Install aborts and saved dump onto floppy. System
The following is anaconda's dump...
Traceback (innermost last):
line 20, in run
rc = self.todo.doInstall ()
File "/tmp/updates/todo.py", line 1638, in doInstall
File "/tmp/updates/todo.py", line 1189, in createCdrom
os.symlink(device, self.instPath + "/dev/" + cdname)
OSError: [Errno 28] No space left on device
Local variables in innermost frame:
self: <todo.ToDo instance at 8451b98>
Expected Results: Successful install
Installed components were trimmed down to 500M or so, still doesn't work.
Installed components were basically just kernel, x, network client, no
multimedia, no programming tools.
Tried to use the anaconda patch (anaconda update disk (RHBA-2000-084)),
has same behavior.
You need at least 100M, 150M is better, for the '/' partition.
The next version of the installer will display a warning about this.
