Install RPM Package Issues


Hello Folks,

I am installing the RPM. I am executing the below mentioned command:

rpm -ivh --noscripts --nodeps --nomd5 test-4.0.1-0.9434.i386.rpm

It says :
installing package test-4.0.1-0.9434.i386.rpm needs 47MB on the / filesystem

I have enough space though. But if I execute with --ignoresize option then it install the package properly.

Please help to investigate the root cause of this issue.

Thanks,
Saurabh Chokshi

I can't see the / filesystem through df command. However, I can see ram filesystem mounted on ramfs through mount command.

[root@rcentos64 ~]$ df -h
Filesystem Size Used Avail Use% Mounted on
/dev/shm 1.6G 20K 1.6G 1% /dev/shm
/dev/ram0 16M 2.4M 14M 16% /var/log
/dev/ram1 16M 222K 16M 2% /var/log/httpd
/dev/ram2 16M 16M 0 100% /var/log/messages
/dev/ram3 16M 3.0K 16M 1% /var/log/ntpd
/dev/TOM 191M 150M 41M 79% /TOM
/dev/sdb2 291M 58M 234M 20% /TOMRW


[root@rcentos64 ~]$ mount
ramfs on / type ramfs (rw)
/proc on /proc type proc (rw)
/sys on /sys type sysfs (rw)
usbfs on /proc/bus/usb type usbfs (rw)
/dev/shm on /dev/shm type tmpfs (rw)

/dev/ram0 on /var/log type ext2 (rw)
/dev/ram1 on /var/log/httpd type ext2 (rw)
/dev/ram2 on /var/log/messages type ext2 (rw)
/dev/ram3 on /var/log/ntpd type ext2 (rw)
/dev/TOM on /TOM type ext3 (ro)
/dev/sdb2 on /TOMRW type ext3 (rw,noatime,nodiratime)
/DOMRW/cfg/usr/local/db on /usr/local/db type none (rw,bind)
/DOMRW/app/usr/local/upgrades on /usr/local/upgrades type none (rw,bind)
[root@rcentos64 ~]$

I got it worked in fedora Core 4. Now I am using CentOS and it is not working.
