Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 492614
installer miscalculates space available
Last modified: 2009-04-13 10:20:37 EDT
Description of problem:
anaconda makes all the way through partitioning and software customization with a split of partitions [root-6G,usr-24G,tmp-5G,var-6G] and customization is a rather full workstation [GNOME,KDE,Development,Office] and should need about 24G total, but errors out with a need for 4.8G more of space.
previous attempts revealed that usr has about 10G used, and root has 3G.
I suspect that anaconda is not correctly seeing all the available space.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
22.214.171.124 (rawhide 20090326)
Steps to Reproduce:
anaconda errors out wanting more space
installation should proceed
300GB drive with a VG of 290GB and total allocated space of 40GB
Can you pls provide the installation logs. they are located in /tmp/* during the installation.
providing all logs, it reported needing 25nn MB of space with a 32768 MB root lv provided in custom layout.

additionally, attempting to go "back" and resize the lv_root failed with no traceback "filesystem not created"
I assume this is the message about "You need more space on the following file systems:"? Which filesystems did it report needing the extra space on? This checking comes straight from yum (well probably straight from RPM). anaconda just formats the error message and displays it for you. I don't think there's anything related to the new storage code at work here.
No, it is not the RPM/YUM you need more space on a given filesystem.
It doesn't mention ANY specific filesystem.
I'm not sure the installer is seeing /any/ filesystems, it is complaining as soon as the "resolving dependencies" progress bar completes.
I'm familiar with the RPM and YUM raw messages, and this is not from either of them. The only choices are "Back" and "Exit Installer"
If I had a digital camera I'd take a screen shot and attach that, but my camera's seem to have just as much bad luck as recent rawhides.
If you can't provide a screenshot, do provide the exact, complete text of the error message.

transcribed error message from failed install
as stated in the main commentary, it doesn't seem that the system is seeing any of the provided storage. root-32768MB, /usr-32786MB, /tmp-4096MB, /var-8192MB, /home-32768MB, swap-3072MB all are lvm LVs created fresh for this installer run.
there is an additional /dump-65532MB new lv and an existing 160GB /store pre-eixting primary partition on a second drive.
Thanks for the transcription. This tells me exactly what I need to know. This should be fixed in the next build of anaconda.
