Insufficient Space



  • Insufficient Space for install

     

    Just one of a series of problems I had installing Lotus Symphony. (The first being that I was told a directory with 755 perms wasn't readable). This one got me laughing though...

    First, it's 509M. Then, it's 965M. Then, 11G isn't enough space. How big is it, anyway? 



  •  Select a drive with less than 4 GB (or possiby 2 GB) free instead. Integer overflow really bites sometimes.

    If that is indeed the problem, why did they convert the integers that failed the check to a format that doesn't before displaying them?



  • I had an installer recently claim that I had 540MB free space.

    It wasn't an overflow, it actually meant 540GB.

    I don't know whether the size test was also broken because it was only a 5MB program.

    Fixed that for you.

    Also, if you strike the 4096s out of 17375 you still end up with 1447MB - still big enough.

    Perfectionism? 



  • On my new laptop, I installed VB6 for some legacy apps...I was a bit ticked when it told me I only had something like 9G free.  Granted, more than enough for most of what I wanted, but I still had to install VS2005 and some other stuff.  So I was going to wait and see how things played out.

     After VB6 was done, I pulled up explorer to find out it was really closer to 90G free, VB6 just couldn't handle that much free space I guess.  Studio 2005 got the number right though.

    So how is SSDS coming along?

    And you are continuing to try and install this crap for what reason?
