Re: lowmem (4Meg)

Date: Tue May 02 2000 - 21:42:12 CEST

When I try and install via rc.dosinstallation or normal, I cannot get past the USR installation (Still) because I only have 4 meg of ram and the swap is 8meg. I believe USR would install if I could just increase the size of the swapfile to 16 or 20 meg so that it could at least allocate enough swap space to handle decompression... and it might be a nice feature during installation to be able to pick the size of your swapfile. HD space I have plenty, and would gladly lose 20meg of space to swapfile to get muLinux working.

I was hoping to build an installation that worked without needing to use the floppy, I have the images on my harddrive... why copy them to a floppy just to turn around and copy them back? Is there a nice way that I can run the installation completely from the hard drive? Also, is it would be nice to increase the swap size (like a prompt for size) during installation.
