Do you have sufficient SWAP configured on your system? ___________________ Thanks! The machine in question has 2 GiB of memory. I asked for an automatic partitioning of the disk during installation and the installer chose 3.some GiB. I usually use twice the RAM but I let it go this time since it was what was recommended by the automatic anaconda. What swap should I go for there? Thanks again!
