Description Kevin - The Alchemist - Sonney 2001-09-02 17:08:01 UTC
Description of Problem:
When upgrading with RC2, I enocoutered a situation where I was short 74 meg
on / for the "selected packages"

In order to correct this, I tried to "go back" to the package selection so
I could click "Select packages to upgrade"

The installer will not let me go back that far, as it's alreeady mounted
filesystems. (and no, the swap file isn't on /)

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Rooswell RC2

How Reproducible:

Additional Information:
It would be nice if I were able to change package selections when it
propmts me that I'm short on disk space, instead of forcing me to quit or
go back - since I can't go far enough back to change the package selection.

Comment 1 Michael Fulbright 2001-09-04 18:37:40 UTC
I think this is because swap has been activated already.

Any ideas Jeremy?

Comment 2 Matt Wilson 2001-09-04 18:52:12 UTC
deferred at least one release.

Comment 3 Kevin - The Alchemist - Sonney 2002-01-22 02:01:54 UTC
I suppose this means it's deferred indefinately?

Comment 4 Jeremy Katz 2002-01-22 02:39:43 UTC
We tend to revisit all the deferred bugs after every release...  I just don't
see any way to fit this in with anything else scheduled for Hampton or add it to
the already overfull list of things to do.
