Description ahoyer 1999-01-24 23:07:18 EST
When using the kickstart option, if you need more than 128M
of swap, the kickstart setup will fail.  More than 1 swap
partition isn't allowed either.
Comment 1 Matt Wilson 1999-03-13 16:34:59 EST
128M is a hard kernel swap limit for i386 under 2.0.x kernels.
Looking at the code, multiple swap partitions should work by doing
more than one "part swap --size 32" line.  What error do you get?
Comment 2 Matt Wilson 1999-03-13 17:11:59 EST
Also, swap partitions up to 2 GB are supported in the next release of
Red Hat Linux.
Comment 3 ahoyer 1999-03-13 20:12:59 EST
The idea behind the problem is that I need 256M of swap.  Reading the
howto's it says that that one can have multiple 128M swap partitions
or files to add up to a max of 2 Gb or something like that. So more
than one "part swap --size 128" didn't work for me.

Dave can you please verify?
Comment 5 David Lawrence 1999-06-30 12:21:59 EDT
I have verified that on both 5.2 and 6.0 the installer ignores more
than one swap partition line in the ks.cfg file. This has been
assigned to a developer for further review.

This issue is resolved in the current release.
