The kernel-source package needs just over 90M of space to decompress to . . .
you have 74M on /usr . . . the message is telling you that you need 17M more on
top of the 74M that you already have.
Comment 2 Need Real Name 2001-04-23 15:50:43 EDT
OK - thanks for that. 
Message could be a bit more explicit :)
This still happens when I configure up2date to NOT install packages after
download - I would have thought that was incorrect?

Anyway as far as I am concerned this bug can be closed.
