Description jfm2 2002-10-24 21:28:24 UTC
From Bugzilla Helper:
User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux i586; en-US; rv:1.0.1) Gecko/20020830

Description of problem:
More exactly it is about impossible to customize packages.  Since swap is stil
not active at this time then if you try to customize packages Linux will have to
constantly reload pages from CDROM.  For me it meant about five minutes between
the time I clicked and the system reacting

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

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1.Pass mem=64m when you are going to install
2.At package selection time try to select individual packages
3.I suggest anaconda being modified for swap actication taking place sooner if
box has only 64 megs

so I'm resolving these bugs as Rawhide.  If the bug you are seeing still exists,
please reopen this report and mark it as Reopened.
