Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 439243
Install runs out of memory installing kernel package
Last modified: 2008-03-27 16:16:58 EDT
Description of problem:
I've been doing PXE kickstart installs pretty regularly (last was on the 24th)
but today's crashes with the system running out of memory while installing the
kernel. top shows large amount of "cached" memory usage.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Looks like packages aren't getting cleared out of
/tmp/cache/anaconda-Fedora-<>/packages again. This is an http repo install.
Right, and that's because we shouldn't even be using /tmp/cache anymore. This
will be fixed in the next build of anaconda.
