I wanted to participate to printer (and HDD) testing and commented this to the news thread. I have high doubts that people read news to see if additional comments have come, so I'll post here. For give me on double posting, but this hopefully is worth reading.
The dilemma here is: Where did the free space disappear?
Filesystem overhead cannot account for 14 megabytes of lost space.
The Fedora 13 nightly build is just a tiny bit too large to fit into 1 gig USB key.
Though liveusb-creator reports
[creator:544] Verifying filesystem...
[creator:245] freebytes = 994951168
[creator:246] isosize = 980418560
[creator:248] overlaysize = 0
df -k during the install:
Filesystem 1K-blocks Used Available Use% Mounted on
/dev/sdb1 971632 217184 754448 23% /media/FEDORA
/dev/loop0 957102 957102 0 100% /tmp/tmpLLEWnm
Both of the above indicate that there is enough space in the USB key.
Ie. Freebytes is more than isosize and /dev/sdb1 bigger than /dev/loop
cp: writing `/media/FEDORA/EFI/boot/vmlinuz0': No space left on device
Second try running liveusb creator comes up with:
Not enough free space on device.
935MB ISO + 0MB overlay > 934MB free space
Where did 14 megabytes of free space disappear?
(971632 x 1 k blocks = 948MB)
