Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 50460
Traceback during install
Last modified: 2007-03-26 23:47:30 EDT
Description of Problem:
When installing, I partitioned my drive as follows:
/dev/hda1 /boot 59 M
/dev/hda2 /dos 2 G
/dev/hda3 swap 133 M
/dev/hda4 / 2G
I was trying to do a custom everything install and it was telling me in the
selct packages screen that it was 3+G (could the free space check be moved
here? it seems to make more sense then after the format/preinstall phase
since we already have the partition sizes and do size reporting). I bravely
(ahem.. ) went on to ceck how well it responded to this. After preparing to
install and formatting my drives, it finally comes back with "you need X
amount more space on /" I click ok, and it reports a traceback!
Haven't tried to reproduce yet
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Install without enough free space,
2. Get warned finally
Will provide anaconda dump as atachment
Created attachment 25591 [details]
Also.. Checking each and every checkbox except for everything i get a total
install size <2G.
Somehow, this doesn't make a whole lot of sense, do we have over 2G of packages
that are not installed in any basic install unless I purposely select them?! If
so, can we have a category called "other stuff" or "things not installed by
default"? Even if it's hidden, if it was at least in the comps file, I could
then see what packages there are that aren't being installed by default.
The 2G+ seems a bit much to have but not install, as well
This defect is considered MUST-FIX for Fairfax.
Brent please reproduce.
Were you using the shell on tty2 and accessing anything under /mnt/sysimage in
the before installing packages stage?
