    In yast package installer, when I do online updates. It will say my flash drives space is nearly empty on all installing. I'm getting this again. There are many gstreamer updates.

    There is a confirmed bug

    https://bugzilla.opensuse.org/show_bug.cgi?id=962226

    Not sure that the fix was backported... (apparently not if bug report reflects current reality)

    This happens also to any other kind of device mounted from USB connections; I mean you should see it for external HDDs either, not just for flash drivers.

    And ... it manifests if the device's label contains space(s) in their label !
    If you change the label so that it will not contains any spaces any more, you'll not see this message any more.

    The flash drive I'm using has a space in the partition label. In an irony, it's used to test my script ability to handle spaces in drive labels. It works.
