Description Richard W.M. Jones 2013-05-21 06:27:30 EDT
Description of problem:

Currently it fails with random errors such as:

supermin-helper: ext2: parent directory not found

This confuses a lot of people who have just run out of space
on /tmp or /var/tmp.  supermin should include better error
detection and/or should try to predict the size of the
appliance and bail if there's not enough space.

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

supermin 4.1.1

Changing version to '20'.

This is fixed in supermin version 5.  We now run statvfs and
give an error like this one:
