#82 closed defect (wontfix)

Space check for ipkg

Reported by: olli Owned by: developers
Priority: normal Milestone: 1.0-rc5
Component: packages Version: 1.0
Keywords: ipkg Cc: olli@…


Lots of users are using 'ipkg install foobar.ipk' without checking the dependencies and the available space on the flash.

This could fill up the JFFS2 partition completly and than there is no way to use rm, dd or something else to make room on the flash again.

Please patch ipkg so that it will check the avalaible space on the partition before it will continue with installing the packages.

Sorry, it's not possible to check this reliably, due to the jffs2 compression.
