Description Jens Petersen 2008-01-22 19:23:05 EST
Description of problem:
4000MB is too small to support yum upgrades etc so I would suggest
increasing the default disk file size to about 5000MB.
Comment 1 Daniel Berrange 2008-01-22 19:38:19 EST
That is entirely dependant on what set of packages you have installed. I can
easily demonstrate both that 5 GB is too small for some package sets, and that 4
GB is overly large. It is also dependant on what architecture (eg x86_64 is
multilib), what OS version (some versions of YUM are more efficient than
others), and even what OS (Windows doesn't use YUM).  It is non-sensical to set
defaults based on the hypothetical requirements on a particular type of install
of any single OS.
Comment 2 Jens Petersen 2008-01-22 19:45:27 EST
Erm, granted, but then why 4GB? :)

(I am basing on default Fedora i386 installs FWIW.)
Comment 3 Jens Petersen 2008-01-24 23:43:07 EST
Another datapoint: current rawhide livecd-desktop image won't install
with 5GB even.
