You need to increase the swap size by the amount you'd use for /tmp. Or, if you have plenty of RAM, merely increase the cap but then it may have no place to be swapped to if you'd want the RAM for other uses. Which raises a question what is a reasonable /tmp size. I doubt a system where someone even considers scanning a 1.2G document would be so tight to not afford 2.4G of RAM+swap (the /tmp cap is still set to 50%, right?). Thus, this suggests it might be a good idea to adjust d-i defaults. -- 1KB // Yo momma uses IPv4!
