Reporter, check to see if your bug is a duplicate of Bug 76123. There are useful comments with regards to how much memory must be installed in your machine to install Red Hat Linux 8.0.
Comment 2 Tom Burk 2003-01-23 17:32:25 UTC
It certainly is SIMILAR to bug 76123. The point I tried to make (which wasn't made in 76123 as far as I could see) was if you just change the install to text mode, then you can install Linux 8.0 and it will run on a system with < 128MB. That seemed silly to me (both the install approaches presumably install the same system - I can use the __full GUI__ when I install in text mode, albeit with a lot of swapping going on).
Comment 3 Michael Lee Yohe 2003-01-27 15:51:28 UTC
Correct - if you read the comments by Red Hat developers in Bug 76123, you will notice that they've changed the timing of swap activation so these memory problems will not occur. Also, the release notes have been updated to specify the system requirements for future releases. Resolution == DUPLICATE (Bug 76123)
Comment 4 Michael Fulbright 2003-01-27 17:10:07 UTC
I could not find the information about the system being installed, or the steps required to reproduce the issue. If you could point me at this information I may be able to help.
