Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 78201
Swap advice seems wrong
Last modified: 2008-01-17 12:49:41 EST
The Linux kernels after 2.4.9 were fixed so that the extra swap requirement was
removed. The installer is still trying to insist on it.
We asked Michael Johnson about this for 8.0 and he indicated we should leave it in.
For systems with less than 192MB RAM + existing we'll need to do something or
the upgrade will fail. For 256MB RAM or more we could disable the warning. Does
that sound adequate?
The constraint nowdays isnt
swap = max(2*RAM, current, needed_swap)
its just swap = max(current, needed_swap)
So for < 256Mb you probably do want plenty of swap with openorifice, nastilus
and evolution involved
I'm going through Bugzilla closing some bugs that have been marked as Modified
for some period of time. I believe that most of these issues have been fixed,
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.
