Description of problem:

When I try and update my kernel using up2date, I get the following error:

There was a fatal RPM error.  The message was:
Failed installing packages:
('installing package kernel-2.4.18-19.7.x needs 12Mb on the / filesystem', (9,
'/', 12046336L))

However, "df -k /" reveals that I have enough space.

Filesystem           1k-blocks      Used Available Use% Mounted on
/dev/hda5              2000204   1875904     22692  99% /

I rely on the rpm estimates of space needed. If the
rpm estimates are wrong, thats an rpm issue.

reassigning to rpm.

You need 12 Mb more than is available, not 12 Mb total.
