Summary: Include information about disk space distribution
Classification: openSUSE
Product: openSUSE 12.1
Version: Factory
Platform: Other
OS/Version: Other
Status: NEW
Severity: Enhancement
Priority: P5 - None
Component: Live Medium

The live installer has very limited means to find out whether the disk
partitioning fits the media, because the media does not contain information
about the distribution of the disk usage (e.g. knowing the size of /usr is
needed to calculate whether the partition is big enough).

YaST can calculate the distribution - but this, especially on a CD, takes quite
some time (and due to related complains, it now uses 'df' instead of 'du' for
calculation of the progress; it would be much more convenient to have this
information on the disk (similarly as packages have it in the metadata).
