I made the lowmem test with my test machine. It is a pentium 200 and
I used 12MB of ram. The disks are two Quantum Fireballs 15GB with DMA
enabled. The disks have 3 partitions each configured as RAID 1.
/dev/md0 /boot (50M)
/dev/md2 / (14G)
/dev/md1 swap (500M)
The RAID /dev/md2 was syncing while I ran hevy NFS and disk to disk
copy traffic and I updated some RPMS. Everything worked very fine!!!
No crash, no endless swapping.
The same test with only 8MB ram was a pain because lack of ressources.
