Re: Memory requirements for RH7.1



Hmm ... to put the opposite swing on this
discussion, the solution may actually be
to put LESS memory in your computer while
you do the install.
Not sure, but that may tell anaconda to
require less swap.

Only a guess though.

Try 32M if you has 2 DIMMS to make your
64M
(Or take the 64M out and borrow 32M from
someone)
