Default Install problem RedHat 7.3 ISE 6.1i - no space available

I just thought I'd ask here while I'm waiting for the
webcase registration to go through...

I tried installing ISE 6.1i on Linux (RedHat 7.3) yesterday.

The install failed, because it said there was not enough disk
space. What happened was that it seemed to be picking up the
percent available instead of the disk space free.

The form showed something like

Available disk space 19% K

I tried fooling it by aliasing df, assuming that it is running df
to find the disk space

alias df='/bin/df -P'

but that didn't work. I even tried a ghastly combination of tr and cut
to remove spaces and cut out the percent available field! That didn't
fool it either.

Has anyone else encountered this?

The only unusual thing about the machine is that we use Xi Graphics
DeXTop CDE as the window manager, otherwise it is plain RedHat 7.3,
kept bang up-to-date.

The other thing I wondered is if the length of the path is important?
We install in


whereas the default install is /xilinx, so I guess that might be
causing the install program to pick the wrong field?



P.S. As I say, when the webcase registration goes through, I'll
report it to Xilinx support as well.
