How much swap do you think I will need for a glibc box to make a RVM
data partition of 315M? I had the same problem, with 48M real mem and
128M virtual mem. I couldn't make a 315M RVM partition but I did ok
with a 130M RVM.

So what happens if you drop below the 4% threshold? I was hoping to
put more than 3GB of disk on a coda server. I was hoping to put
something more on the order of 20GB on a server. (I have lots of disk
but not that many machines). The usage would be generally pretty light
but I need to store lots of stuff.
