Description Nigel Horne 2006-04-14 20:45:25 UTC
Description of problem:
[ I've put this in redhat-config-packages because I couldn't find anywhere on
your system to note installation/upgrade problems ]

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

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Attempt to upgrade from FC4 to FC5
Actual results:
I am told I don't have enough disc space, but I am left guessing how much I need
to free. The dialog box should tell me how much is needed not just say that I
don't have enough. I now have to waste time deleting a bit, trying again,
deleting a bit, trying again and so on until I have removed enough.

Expected results:
'You need an extra xxx MB free disc space'

Additional info:

I guess you meant the installer, it's anaconda. Reassigning to it, and setting
arch to "All".

Does make much more sense, IMO. The total value could be included in
parenthesis, though.
