Both GNORPM and kpackage give the following report when I try to install
star office (this package installed under 6.0), also tryed other packages.
I have All of RedHat6.1GPL installed. (this installed when I upgraded, I
did not use upgrade option I just overwrote the whole OS except /home then
fixed some config files in /etc)
Installing package XXXX needs 23M on / file system.
The root file system has 139M free.
Filesystem Size Used Avail Use% Mounted on
/dev/hda1 1.5G 1.3G 139M 90% /
/dev/hda5 499M 168M 305M 36% /home
/dev/hdb 411M 411M 0 100% /mnt/cdrom
It is read/write
/dev/hda1 on / type ext2 (rw)
none on /proc type proc (rw)
/dev/hda5 on /home type ext2 (rw)
none on /dev/pts type devpts (rw,gid=5,mode=620)
/dev/hdb on /mnt/cdrom type iso9660 (ro,nosuid,nodev,user=delor)
Do you have symlinks pointing into /mnt/cdrom ?
Does the package have paths that traverse those symlinks?
Meanwhile, add --ignoresize to the rpm command to skip disk space checking.
Closed for lack of input.
