Description of problem:
I am testing ispec on a unit with 12GB of physical memory. When I
install the OS via any of the ks files (tried the min and max memory
ks configs) only a 2GB swap file is created in the OS.
In the past with RH3, we created a swap paritition that was at least
2x the size of physical memory specifically for the CORE test.
Will the core test run properly with this size swap partitition
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1.Create ispec configuration entering 12GB for memory amount.
2.Install os via ks file from either min or max config.
3. I checked swap size from /proc/meminfo, only a 2 GB swap file has
Expected Results: I was expecting a swap file that was at least
equal to the size of physical memory, but preferable 2x physical.

Partitioning is done automatically, so your swap partition should be
the (anaconda-recommended) appropriate size for your machine. As far
as we know, the test will run just fine with that amount of swap.
If it doesn't run, feel free to change the kickstart configuration to
specify the needed amount of swap. Add the line:
partition swap --size=12288 (or some other size, as you deem necessary)
after the 'autopart' line in the appropriate ks.cfg file, then restart
the test. You'll need to mention this change when you submit the test
