Description Gerald Pfeifer 2010-11-07 16:38:00 EST
Description of problem:

A preupgrade from Fedora 13 to Fedora 14 checks for the availability 
of 500MB of disk space, but then fails -- after the reboot -- even
though 791MB of disk are available on /.

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


How reproducible:


Additional info:

Setting severity high since this can easily hit others, too, and is
easy to fix (by adjusting the limit that is checked for).

On top of this, after failing with an out of disk space message
after reboot, when trying to reboot again, I get ""Error No active
partition" on this Lenovo T61 and the system is unbootable requiring
some parted/grub-install from a rescue system.
Comment 1 Fedora End Of Life 2012-08-16 16:00:06 EDT
This message is a notice that Fedora 14 is now at end of life. Fedora 
has stopped maintaining and issuing updates for Fedora 14. It is 
Fedora's policy to close all bug reports from releases that are no 
longer maintained.  At this time, all open bugs with a Fedora 'version'
of '14' have been closed as WONTFIX.

(Please note: Our normal process is to give advanced warning of this 
occurring, but we forgot to do that. A thousand apologies.)

Package Maintainer: If you wish for this bug to remain open because you
plan to fix it in a currently maintained version, feel free to reopen 
this bug and simply change the 'version' to a later Fedora version.

Bug Reporter: Thank you for reporting this issue and we are sorry that 
we were unable to fix it before Fedora 14 reached end of life. If you 
would still like to see this bug fixed and are able to reproduce it 
against a later version of Fedora, you are encouraged to click on 
"Clone This Bug" (top right of this page) and open it against that 
version of Fedora.

Although we aim to fix as many bugs as possible during every release's 
lifetime, sometimes those efforts are overtaken by events.  Often a 
more recent Fedora release includes newer upstream software that fixes 
bugs or makes them obsolete.

The process we are following is described here:
