Description of problem:
while doing LVM it seems to have many problems with lvm like on creating pv blivet-gui crashes.this time the swap partition is not created after booting and not shown in fstab also.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:anytime

Steps to Reproduce:
2. Use blivet-gui.
3. Create boot
4. Use LVM.
5.  root volume is added as lvm vg.
6.Add swap on same.
7. Finish installation.
Actual results:
no signs of creation of swap partition in fstab.

Expected results:
successfully creation of swap partition in the system.

Comment 1 Jiri Kortus 2017-04-06 12:52:19 UTC
I ran into a very similar issue even without LVM partitioning. The device for swap was created during installation, however it is not used in the installed system (not even mentioned in /etc/fstab).

Comment 2 Chris Murphy 2017-04-06 20:44:22 UTC
if GPT partitioning = true, and
if standard partition (not lvm) = true, and
if swap partition encrypted = false, and 
if swap partition type guid is 8200 (this is a gdisk value, the real guid is 0657FD6D-A4AB-43C4-84E5-0933C84B4F4F), then

It's OK to not list it in fstab, because systemd is supposed to discover it.


Point is, the comment 1 bug could be a systemd bug and should be separately checked and have it's own bug report.

Comment 3 Alessio 2017-04-06 22:34:33 UTC
yup. The swap partition (using LVM or not) is actually created. But not activated on boot.
For instance swapon /dev/sda2 enable the swap partition.

journalctl |grep swap
Apr 07 00:26:54 localhost-live kernel: Adding 2097148k swap on /dev/sda2.  Priority:-1 extents:1 across:2097148k FS

systemctl |grep swap
dev-sda2.swap                                                                             loaded active active    /dev/sda2

Oops, forgot to tell Anaconda to configure new swaps created by blivet-gui. Thank you all for the testing.
