Cannot allocate memory
Last modified: 2014-01-21 17:59:29 EST
Description of problem:
Everytime I'm installing or updating something, yum is doing what it has to do,
but with error.
error: Couldn't fork %post/%preun: Cannot allocate memory
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Run yum
It doesn't exit with error, but doesn't install/update some packages (error with
[livio@castello ~]$ rpm -q kernel
I think yum messed me in system (Fedora installed from runlevel 3 from LiveCD,
because of 128MB RAM).
RPM is working alright - it's installing, updating without errors.
I'm not sure how much we'll be able to support on 128M of ram. It just doesn't
work out for what we're doing.
