From Bugzilla Helper:
User-Agent: Mozilla/4.77 [en] (X11; U; Linux 2.2.17-14 i586)
Error message received when trying to download kernel source.
"Test install failed because of package conflicts.
Installing package kernel-source-2.2.19-7.0.1 needs 17Mb on the /usr
df -m reports 74Mb available
/var/spool/up2date is linked to /home/up2date which has 731Mb available.
Steps to Reproduce:
2.select kernel-source package only
3.clicked on next
Actual Results: Update agent progress box appears.
Error message is displayed.
Expected Results: Package should have been downloaded to
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.
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.
