Okay, so this is because we need to set a part size for / in the kickstart file. This means, that people are able to put their image on their 1 GB USB key, but also that space on / is really limited, for example since we're also getting some non-sense dependencies as libgweather and evolution-data-server. Well, we might consider going up with that size now or at a later point. At least, this will definitely occur to people trying to install some stuff.

Opinions? Reducing the package load of the image? Increasing the part size for now?

This was originally about a problem suspected in the VirtualBox--Fedora 10.92 interaction with the squashfs in not recognizing the autoexpanding disc. Some of the logs may apply to that.

We've been experimenting with a larger part size in the kickstart file and recieved reports that even then it fits on a 1 GB USB key. This should fix this issue, but needs to be double-checked, though.
