Description of problem:
When I try to upgrade to Phoebe I get a dialog box that says "Disk Space" and
nothing more with a picture of a lightbulb and an OK button. When I press Ok,
it trys to upgrade again giving me the same dialog box. This happens right
after the preparing to install dialog.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Select Upgrade
2. Check install additional packages
Actual Results: uninformative dialog box
Expected Results: install new rpms
It is possible that my /boot partition was running low. I had 4 kernels in
/boot when I tried to upgrade, so it is possible this was the error. If this is
the case the dialog box should tell you which partition is low on space.
It should be telling you that -- if you switch to tty3 when you get this, is
there anything listed?
I switch to console 3 and I had a screen full of warnings of the type:
WARNING: unhandled problem returned from transaction set type 6 (file
/usr/share/doc/HTML/en/cervisia/common/xml.dcl conflicts between attempted
installs of kdesdk-3.1-0.3 and kdelibs-3.1-0.5)
Perhaps these warnings are a cause of me installing KDE 3.0.5 rpms?
OH, I also removed two of the four kernels in my /boot partition, so it was not
a space issue in /boot that was causing the dialog box to come up
It's a consequence of the file conflicts.
Fixed in newer rpm.
