Description David Woodhouse 2007-04-15 16:24:31 UTC
Anaconda will enable swap ASAP if there's less than about 137 MiB of RAM
(actually 240000 k KiB)

That threshold seems to be too low -- on PS3 anaconda runs out of memory before
it formats swap. Increasing isys.EARLY_SWAP_RAM to 240000 kKiB would work.
