I can give a current 'df -h' but, unfortunately, I didn't write down
any specifics while updating.

Here's what I currently have.

[ronb at localhost ~]$ df -h
Filesystem            Size  Used Avail Use% Mounted on
                            35G   30G  3.4G  90% /
/dev/hda1             97M   37M   56M  40% /boot
tmpfs                    502M      0  502M   0% /dev/shm

The issue came up *after* I had downloaded all the update files. My
used space was 99%, approximately 230 Megs were shown available at /.
There was no memory available in my tmpfs directory/partition.

I believe yum kicked me out of the update process. There were a lot of
messages without line breaks -- filled up the screen. When I cleared
about 3 Gigs of memory and re-ran 'yum update' it started back up
where I left off and finished the updated without issue..

If you think that I have enough information to file a bug report I'll
go ahead and do that.

Thanks again.
