This won't work until swap support is complete. jam on its own needs around 550MB to do its build calculations and fork, ignoring the rest of the OS, cache, etc, as a result of which this currently won't be doable with less than ~800MB-1GB of RAM.

This may be true, but it still needs to be fixed before Alpha 1 release

Yes, but it's already a well known issue with other bugs tracking it in the system. It may have been more accurate to close this as a duplicate but I couldn't find the ticket number offhand.

Replying to bbjimmy:

It's already present on the proposals page (Prop #8):

http://dev.haiku-os.org/wiki/R1/Alpha1Proposals#Prop8:FinishandIncludeSwapFileSupport

Currently there is a GSoC student working on it under the mentorship of Ingo I believe.

Correct and it's getting relatively close to being able to be turned on from what I've seen. Hopefully in the next few weeks.
