F11 Beta won't install if separate LV for /usr is created
Last modified: 2009-04-01 10:37:12 EDT
Description of problem:
I'm trying to install F11 Beta (basic set of packages). I've got 2 virtual disks on which i want install F11. During installation process I've created 2 volume groups on those disks: rootvg and datavg.
lv_usr /usr 3 GB
lv_root / 1.5 GB
lv_swap swap 1 GB
lv_home 500 MB
lv_data - rest of space.
After selecting packages, anaconda complains that: "Your selected packages require 379 MB of free space for installation, but you do not have enough available."
When there's no separate /usr, installation is going just perfectly fine.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Fedora 11 Beta
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Create separate LV for /usr filesystem during partitioning stage
I have the same problem, but just using plain separate partitions for root, usr, var and home. With 1.5 GB in root and 12 GB in /usr, the installer complains about needing 4 GB free.
