Although I would like to winge to someone about anaconda's crazy
I know it's nothing to do with XFS, but maybe having hacked anaconda
you XFS folks can help out... or at least sympatise :)
a) insisting on swap = 2x memory when you have heaps (384M) of ram
installed and ~200M of swap seems silly. 2.4 kernels aren't that
tragic (agressive) at using swap... and there's no way an install is
going to fail with almost 500M of VM available, which is what
anaconda misleadingly implies is going to happen.
Is this suggestion actually based in reality?!?
b) the 20-24M ram minimum before anaconda will run at all is also
very annoying - my 16M laptop (200M+ of swap) runs 2.4-XFS happily...
but I just can't upgrade from RH6.2 to 7.1 :-/ You'd think the
installer could use the plentiful VM, and should work fine (although
Do you think this ~20M limit in anaconda going to go away any time soon?
I can try upgrading from 6.2 to 7.1 one-rpm-at-a-time but it'll be a
real pain... From reading the anaconda src it looks like 'expert'
install mode should override the 20M check but it doesn't.
