Description Orion Poplawski 2008-03-27 13:32:11 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):

How reproducible:
Comment 1 Orion Poplawski 2008-03-27 13:47:04 EDT
Looks like packages aren't getting cleared out of
/tmp/cache/anaconda-Fedora-<>/packages again.   This is an http repo install. 
Yum issue?
Comment 2 Chris Lumens 2008-03-27 16:16:58 EDT
Right, and that's because we shouldn't even be using /tmp/cache anymore.  This
will be fixed in the next build of anaconda.
