Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 955
Kickstart installation doesent allow more than 128M of swap
Last modified: 2008-05-01 11:37:49 EDT
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.
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?
Also, swap partitions up to 2 GB are supported in the next release of
Red Hat Linux.
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?
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.
