Re: Two Swap Partitions



Thanks for the response, Michael.

I learned that it is possible to have two swap lines in the partitioning
scheme.  I have the following lines in my ks.cfg:

part swap --size 2000
part swap --size 2000

The kernel panic was caused by some things I do in the post section.

Here is an example I have on one of my boxes ( with a lot of ram ).  It
is redhat 7.1 but is using the 7.2 installer.

part / --size 400 --grow --maxsize 500
part /usr --size 2500
part /tmp --size 512 --grow --maxsize 1024
part /var --size 500

part raid.01 --size 1 --grow --ondisk sda
part raid.02 --size 1 --grow --ondisk sdb
raid /scratch --level 0 --device md0 raid.01 raid.02

part swap --size 2047 --ondisk sdb
part swap --size 2047 --ondisk sda
part swap --size 2047 --ondisk sdb
part swap --size 2047 --ondisk sda
part swap --size 2047 --ondisk sdb
part swap --size 2047 --ondisk sda
part swap --size 2047 --ondisk sdb
part swap --size 2047 --ondisk sda
part swap --size 2047 --ondisk sdb
part swap --size 2047 --ondisk sda
part swap --size 2047 --ondisk sdb
part swap --size 1850 --ondisk sda
