Description ctm 1999-02-25 20:48:49 UTC
I upgraded a Red Hat 5.2 machine to Red Hat Beta i386 188.8.131.52 and in my enthusiasm I neglected to free up space on /. The upgrade didn't warn me, nor did it stop at the point of the first error. Instead, it installed a bunch of packages and deleted a bunch more. I'm well versed in cleaning up after my own errors, so it wasn't a big deal, but this strikes me as a problem Red Hat Linux install has had for a while now. I don't know if anyone really wants to hear any more about this, but if so, I still have the upgrade log file that shows all the packages that failed to install.

The installer is being worked on

Fixed in rpm-3.0 rpmlib used by the Red hat 6.0 installer.
