It took a while to have the time to continue testing.
I tried both methods. When I use " storage_vol=:4000:::: " and "
mem_overcommit=0" everything installs fine.
But after I reboot the node i get the screen "login as admin to
configure" and the system hangs.
After several seconds I get the message "systemd-readahead-collect:
Failed to open pack file: Read-only file system"
When I only use " mem_overcommit=0 ", I cannot install the node as the
Disk Space Check tells me I need a bigger drive.
"Available Space: 14305MB"
"Required Space: 26782MB"
This should be less:
0*32 + 8(32<64) = 8GB Swap.
Plus the storage ovirt needs itself (300MB?)
I tried ovirt-node 2.5.1 and 2.5.2

You can do this with 2 different methods, both of which are on the
kernel command line during boot. Simply hit TAB when you're selecting the install
option and add one of the options below to the command line.
1. You can set " storage_vol=:XXX:::: " where XXX is the desired size of the
SWAP partition in MB. It has a minimum size of 5MB.
This lets you set a static size for swap.
2. You can set mem_overcommit=0. This will change our calculation to not add any swap
for overcommit. It will still calculate a value based on the amount of RAM, but not as
large as with the overcommit.
The swap size is calculated at mem_overcommit*RAM + <BASE_SWAP>
BASE_SWAP is calculated using this formula:
if MEM_SIZE < 4GB:
BASE_SWAP = 2GB
elif MEM_SIZE < 16GB:
BASE_SWAP = 4GB
elif MEM_SIZE < 64GB:
BASE_SWAP = 8GB
BASE_SWAP = 16GB
We are planning to expose these option in the TUI installer, just not there yet.
