GNOME install does not figure out minimums til too late
Last modified: 2015-01-07 18:40:32 EST
Ok I have a 800 meg SCSI cdrom and selected GNOME workstation install. The
install partitions the disk and then tells me when I finally get to
installing packages that / is too small.
Hitting OK causes a Python exception
File "/usr/bin/anaconda", line
336 in ?
line 1078 in run
line 623, in __call__
if todo.doInstall ():
line 1288, in doInstall
TypeError: not enough arguments;
expected 2, got 1
This are really 2 problems:
-it warns that there's not enough space after formatting which makes reproducing
it sorta painfully.
-it shouldn't crash after this message but take you back to the package
selection or the install type selection.
I also have seen this bug I think it happens on any config where you don't have
enough diskspace. But here's how I can reproduce it:
-do pcmcia install on 486dx75 / 12mb ram / 360mb hd laptop
-choose nfs install
-select to much
-wait for to much dialog (which is after format !!!)
-the above trace appears, it's identical on my machine
Installer does not partition the disk until after this space check, so something
else might be going on here. The only thing that the installer will do before
this space check is activate swap space if you are running a low memory machine
(I think that the threshold is at 32M for Intel)
As for the python exception after clicking "OK", this is fixed in beta3.
