Description bdraco 1999-10-03 15:12:30 UTC
I did an upgrade, and it told me that I didn't have enough
space on /usr so I rebooted and made more then it told me I
need avalible.  I rebooted again when though the install
again and it got past that part.  However when it got to
installed xpilot it ran out of space on my /usr partition
and just sat there for an hour.

We have made some changes in the space calculations algorithms, so that should
improve things for future releases.
