Description of problem:
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
anaconda on F8 installation DVD
Upgrade F7 to F8 using the F8 DVD.
When the "resolving dependencies" page shows up and starts, anaconda seems to
on a machine with 1G anaconda allocates 1.3G of memory, the machine has been
swapping for the last 36 hours without finishing the dependency check processes.
Anaconda should not need to use 1.3 G of memory to resolve dependencies.
(imagine what whould happen on computers with even less memory installed).
