Description Attila Stehr 2005-07-15 12:54:39 UTC
>>> Merging app-emulation/emul-linux-x86-glibc-2.3.5 to /
--- /emul/
--- /emul/linux/
--- /emul/linux/x86/
--- /emul/linux/x86/lib/
>>> /emul/linux/x86/lib/

Reproducible: Always
Steps to Reproduce:
emerge -v --oneshot '>=emul-linux-x86-glibc-'

with nptlonly and test disabled
have a 122 MB root partition - that should be far enough for linux
Actual Results:  
>> /emul/linux/x86/usr/lib/libbsd-compat.a
>>> /emul/linux/x86/usr/lib/libc.a
!!! copy
-> /emul/linux/x86/usr/lib/libc_g.a failed.
!!! [Errno 28] No space left on device

Expected Results:  
put stuff into /usr or somewhere esle but not to /

Sorry, out of disk space is not a Gentoo bug.
Comment 3 Attila Stehr 2005-07-15 13:11:21 UTC
It is! Since librarys do _not_ belong into the root directory / partition!

Please take cognizance of this doument:

esp this sentence:
The / file system will never need to be more than 100Meg. Make it that.

The libs went to /usr/lib before so it should be kept that way!

Sure, let's move all glibc stuff and all binaries needed to boot the system to
/usr and break Gentoo for users that mount /usr via nfs or whatever. 

> The / file system will never need to be more than 100Meg. 

OK, tell the author of that page to fix his mistaken assumptions.
Comment 5 Attila Stehr 2005-07-15 13:23:57 UTC
No, I'm not taking off all stuff. But what about "/emul"?
How come that there was plenty of space with prior versions of glibc installed
on my system.

Well I guess I'm one of those dumb-ass trying to keep their system most up to
date. And thinking that using a new version could fix some of the problems I
have with other packets. But all I do - when using gentoo is writing bug reports
- and waiting for the next error message. That's no fun :-(

I guess I'm to use the old glibc version and turn away from mplayer etc.
So don't update ... ups .. touch a running system should be my behaviour towards
gentoo then :(

Whatever ... sorry for this now - but this time my frustration 's been too much
to hold!
Comment 6 Jakub Moc (RETIRED) gentoo-dev 2005-07-15 13:31:36 UTC
I'd suggest using LVM2 or EVMS2 next time, that way you will have a really easy
way to avoid problems related to incorrect disk partitioning in future.

This is also a good reading if you choose to stick with traditional partitions -
Comment 7 Attila Stehr 2005-07-15 13:34:58 UTC

Let's just forget about that!
I see no sense in arguing this.
