Description Michael Gauthier 2008-04-21 19:25:12 UTC
Description of problem:

I tried out the Fedora 9 preview release live CD today. To test GFVS
improvements I copied a large file over ssh to my Desktop. This caused the
ramdisk to run out of space and now most programs no longer work.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

9 preview

How reproducible:

Every time

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Start the live CD
2. Copy a large file to the home partition.
Actual results:

Observe nautilus freezing and other programs becoming unresponsive.

Expected results:

Low disk space warning and prevention of large file copy.

Additional info:

This may happen on a normal filesystem too. It's more noticeable on the
temporary filesystem created by the live CD.

This has been the case with the livecd since the beginning.  It'd be nice to
monitor the amount of space used in the snapshot, but that ends up being very

I'll look into it more for Fedora 10, though, to see what we can do

Comment 2 Bug Zapper 2008-05-14 09:52:55 UTC
