bug demonstration video

Description of problem:
In the partitioning screen if I hit Continue, I'm warned that I don't have enough space to install Fedora. But when I hit Done, I'm not warned at all and no warning appears even in the main hub screen. When I start the installation, right after my partitions are modified anaconda tells me I don't have enough free space.

Watch the attached video.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
anaconda 18.37

How reproducible:
always

Steps to Reproduce:
1. create a single partition on disk leaving about 5 GB free space
2. enter partitioning screen
3. hit Continue, you are warned. Hit Cancel. Hit Done, you are not warned.
4. Start installation.

Actual results:
disk layout is modified but installation is not complete

Expected results:
either you are warned in advance, or installation finishes successfully

This is a very nasty bug, proposing as a blocker. Any generic anaconda release criterion should do.

Comment 7 Kamil Páral 2012-12-10 17:55:06 UTC
In the video I clicked Continue to illustrate that in that case anaconda checks the size of the installation. But I can reproduce it without problems by just hitting Done right away.

If you try to reuse partitions (move them from Fedora 17 to 18) you get the same error. I wanted to 'upgrade/reinstall' and reuse /boot, / and swap, leaving /home alone. 

NO SPACE error.

Comment 9 Vratislav Podzimek 2012-12-14 12:46:05 UTC
Kamil, can you still reproduce this with some recent image? I've tried Rawhide anaconda and was not able to reproduce it. From git diff I see that the patch for bug #853636 that is only on master and not on f18-branch brought some changes.

Comment 10 Vratislav Podzimek 2012-12-14 12:51:03 UTC
If you can reproduce this with a recent image, could you please try using http://vpodzime.fedorapeople.org/space_check_updates.img ? It contains the patch for bug #853636 ported to f18-branch and applies to anaconda-18.37.2-1

18.37.2 main hub

Actually this is fixed with 18.37.2, no updates.img needed. It displays an error in the main hub. The partitioning icon does not include a warning triangle, and I think it should, but this particular issue is solved.

(In reply to comment #11)
Also it's worth mentioning that Begin installation can't be clicked. Very good.

Comment 13 Kamil Páral 2012-12-17 09:30:52 UTC
Anaconda was pushed stable, closing.
