An issue to do the update
 
Hi,
When doing the update for Redhat, I’ve got these
installing package kernel-xen-2.6.18-308.11.1.0.1.el5.i686 needs 3MB on the /boot filesystem
installing package openldap-2.3.43-25.el5_8.1.i386 needs 3MB on the /boot filesystem
installing package openldap-devel-2.3.43-25.el5_8.1.i386 needs 3MB on the /boot filesystem
installing package sudo-1.7.2p1-14.el5_8.i386 needs 3MB on the /boot filesystem

and can't finish the update. Why?

Many Thanks & Best Regards,
HuaMin

Means what it says, it needs that space and you don't have it.
Try
Code:

df -h

Sorry, the system update is automatic and how can I put that?

chrism01 07-18-2012 12:07 AM

Type it into a terminal

Do you need these?
[root@hpi5 ~]# df -h
Filesystem Size Used Avail Use% Mounted on
/dev/mapper/VolGroup00-LogVol00
625G 339G 254G 58% /
/dev/sda1 99M 83M 12M 88% /boot
tmpfs 1.8G 0 1.8G 0% /dev/shm
none 1.8G 104K 1.8G 1% /var/lib/xenstored
[root@hpi5 ~]#

Please use code tags https://www.linuxquestions.org/quest...do=bbcode#code thus
Code:

Filesystem                      Size Used Avail Use% Mounted on
/dev/mapper/VolGroup00-LogVol00 625G 339G 254G  58%  /
/dev/sda1                        99M 83M  12M    88%  /boot
tmpfs                            1.8G 0    1.8G  0%  /dev/shm
none                            1.8G 104K 1.8G  1%  /var/lib/xenstored

As you can see, /boot is only 99MB and 88% full ie 12MB free.
I know that some sites may say that's enough, but really that's only to run with one kernel defined.
On RH (and others) you would want to allow for eg 3 kernels: new, current, previous.
I'd recommend at least 512MB for /boot.

Thanks a lot Chrism. How to enlarge the size of boot? I don't see the way in your link at all.

Good day all,
Any advice to this?

Many Thanks & Best Regards,
