Description of problem:
On a 64 megs box when you try to customize package selection there is furious CD
activity while you have to wait for <b>several minutes</b> after each mouse
click and at least thirty seconds for mere mouse movements. Problem is that at
this stage swap is still not activated so linux cannot move modified pages to it
so the only thing it can do is discard code pages.
Either installation is smart enough to shift to text mode when a 64 megs is
detected or when detecting a such box you activate the swap sooner like it was
done in 7.x
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1.Install RedHat while passing mem=64 megs as boot parm
2.Continue installation until package selction
3.Select and unselect a few packages and wait and wait and wait while
your CD reader goes crazy. With luck you will damage it from excessive head
The point at which swap is activated early has been changed in our internal
trees to help improve this.
