Description Wade Mealing 2009-05-20 00:35:30 EDT
Description of problem:

Installing RHEL 4.8 on the z9 LPAR.  The default partition for swap is 4GB.  Leaving ~3GB for a RHEL installation.  For most customers this is not enough to create a useful install.

Using the same hardware configuration, although doing a 31 bit install, the swap is a more resonable  1984MB

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

RHEL 5.3

This is the 5.3 "version" of this bug for Red Hat Enterprise Linux 6.
https://bugzilla.redhat.com/show_bug.cgi?id=466289

Customer has lodged an issue with support.  As changing the default swap size would mean changing the predictability and behaviour of a system this may cause possible performance and stability regressions for customers.

So I ask should/can this be changed before EL6 ?

How much memory is in the machine in question?  Not sure what RHEL4.8 has to do with this problem, either.

I was interrupted many times during this bugzilla, now I realise it makes no sense.  Going to close and re-open with some more sanity.
