Description Saurabh Thakre 2017-04-06 12:35:21 UTC
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. Additional info:

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. https://www.freedesktop.org/wiki/Specifications/DiscoverablePartitionsSpec/ 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. https://github.com/rhinstaller/anaconda/pull/1017
