Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 80972
anaconda uses too much for swap
Last modified: 2008-01-17 12:49:42 EST
On my machine with 2GB RAM and 1.9TB HD, when I selected
the maximum allowable size for swap, I got all the
remaining 1.8TB space for swap. After I made all the
selection, I got an error on my huge swap partition.
Was this an interactive or ks-based installation?
It happened during a GUI interactive install with manual
disk druid partition.
"Got an error" - what was the error?
I got some error later during the package installation.
It is irrelevant since anaconda shouldn't allocate a
1.8TB swap partition. It is very easy to duplicate.
I've added a 'quiet' limit to the suggested max swap size as according to
iutil.swapSuggestion() if the user specified a starting size which is smaller
than the max swap size suggestion.
I'm going through Bugzilla closing some bugs that have been marked as Modified

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.
