Description of Problem:
I happen to have on a test machine 449 MB of a swap space scattered
over different disks. Still anaconda wants an extra 31 MB of a swap
file because I happend to have 256 MB of memory installed. Common
guys! There have to be some reasonable limit when even this broken
Python does not swap anymore. Yes, I am aware of problems with
swap in current 2.4 kernels but if you look closer at what was said
on linux-kernel list than this is not exactly a "twice memory" mechanical
requirement. You may need that when you start really swapping
but below that a behaviour is not really different from 2.2 kernels.
Note that I was able to install at least something (see #39244) when
I _reduced_ an amount of a swap space as opposed to working with a full
The "reasonable limit" is 1 Gig of ram. Above that, we don't require 2x ram for
the swap. Maybe that's too high, maybe it's too low...but that's where we made
it. It's hard to come up with a level that would please everybody.
