Description v.kuhlmann 1999-08-05 02:48:30 EDT
I wanted to have a quick look at the kernel source w/o
actually installing it properly (can't - diskspace).
My filesystems / and /C are NOT** the same!
Command and result:
pukeko|volker[1]:/C/umsdos/k> rpm --noscripts --notriggers
--nodeps --force --ro
ot /C/umsdos/k -ivh ../kernel-source-2.2.5-15.i386.rpm
installing package kernel-source-2.2.5-15 needs 16M on the /
Exit 1

Problem: rpm has checked the free space on the / instead of
on the /C filesystem. Need to use --ignoresize.
Comment 1 Jeff Johnson 1999-08-16 12:51:59 EDT
Is your /C file system an ext2fs file system? Rpm finds space
by doing a statvfs call, and that may be broken on non-ext2fs
file systems.
Comment 2 Jeff Johnson 2001-05-21 16:07:05 EDT
I have no idea how to reproduce this problem and know of no other occurences.
