View Full Version : [ubuntu] Automatic Partitioning Creates 400GB Swap Partition!

March 15th, 2009, 10:28 PM
I'm trying to setup a fully encrypted server using the 8.10 alternate CD. I have a 3ware raid setup with a 1.5TB disk. When I allow the installer to automatically partition the space and setup encrypted LVM it creates a 400GB swap partition :shock: I've tried to go the manual route, but that doesn't work with encrypted LVM. If anyone can shed some light on why it wants to use nearly 1/3 of my entire disk space for a swap partition I could use the help.

Anyone? Why it wants to make a 400GB swap partition on a system with 4GB of ram is beyond me.
