Description percy 1999-04-11 05:20:34 UTC
I've put the upgrade log up on the URL above.  I did an
upgrade from RedHat 5.2 (running kernel 2.2.5).
Mid-upgrade, my /usr partion filled up to 99%, and multiple
packages errored out without putting anything to the
screen.  When I rebooted, I had to manually reupgrade the
errored packages in the upgrade log from CD.

Comment 1 Preston Brown 1999-04-12 19:29:59 UTC
This has been fixed in later versions of the installer, and the
installer now does disk space estimates.
