Description Theo Miller 2005-05-10 11:01:57 EDT

User-Agent: Mozilla/4.0 (compatible; MSIE 6.0; Windows NT 5.1; .NET CLR 1.1.4322)

Description of problem:
Ananconda has a 2GB swap partition limit when using the "part swap -recommended" option in a ks.cfg kickstart file

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
anaconda for rhel3

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Create a kickstart file with the line "part swap --recommended"
2. Kickstart the system
3. Maximum swap partition size will be 2GB, even if it should be more

Actual Results:  Swap partition was 2GB on a systems with 4GB and 8GB physical ram in them

Expected Results:  Swap partition should have been two time the physical ram size

Additional info:
Comment 1 Jeremy Katz 2005-05-10 15:31:28 EDT
This is intentional.  Growing the swap partition beyond 2 GB in the general case
ends up leading to less of a performance improvement than you might otherwise
