Well.. more bullshit.

Azureus requires approx. 25-30 MBytes. I have Azureus running on occasion (usually helping out with torrents for *bsd or obscure linux-distributions). I have never had any kind of swap use with gentoo on a 1 GB RAM system. Reducing the ram to 512 MB changes the look though. Then the PC starts using something like 150-250 MB of swap space (I have 1.5 GB swap - and it is never used with 1 GB of ram).

Your system must be broken, or I am better at compiling applications then CentOS. Pick whatever answer you prefer (and I don't believe I'm better than the CentOS packagers).
