Description richard.delorenzi 1999-12-18 18:08:06 EST
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.
df -h
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.
