I often perform 'yum upgrade' - just to pick up the latest fixes from
Fedora. But with 12.1.0 on an XO-1.5, I am encountering 'cpio' errors
when the upgrade tries to unpack certain packages (e.g.,
gnome-keyring-3.4.1-3). Since there is no sign of their owners rushing
to "fix" such packages, I figure the problem lies at my end.
One thing I have noticed with recent (on my XO-1.5) 12.1.0 builds is
that filesystems /tmp and /var/tmp are absurdly small. I don't know if
this is due to some customization I have applied, or if they come that
way with 12.1.0. Anyway, I wonder if "running out of temporary space"
might explain the 'cpio' failures (inside 'rpm') I'm seeing.
