Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 1011391
Allow to remove swap partitions from FS layout
Last modified: 2013-10-22 01:37:37 EDT
Description of problem:
Anaconda lists all my swap partitions (which is questionable, bug 972526), but it does not allow to remove any of them from partition list for my current installation.
Swap regions belonging to other installations should be removable.

What do you mean by removable? I believe it's possible to remove them as partitions. Do you mean it should be possible to avoid writing them to the fstab of the newly installed system? Would it make any sense?
1. I have several swap partitions on my system.
2. I go with custom partitioning.
3. As soon as I add root partition for my new OS, all swap partitions are listed there.
4. Select one of the swap partitions and click '-', I assumed that they would go away, but they stay there.
5. That means they are written among kernel parameters in my grug.conf and they are written into fstab as well.
So either they cannot be removed (i.e. they are not removable) or the UI is not comprehensible enough to identify the way how to remove them from current installation.
Is this bug still reproducible with Fedora 20 beta TC4 (anaconda-20.25-1)?

This was/is primarily a GUI problem and noa a kickstart problem. I certainly agree that anaconda should not arbitrarly add swaps to fstab.
My experience with kickstart is that you specifically specify what swap partitions or logical volumes are to be treated as such.
I was testing the issue with TC5 and from GUI perspective, it looks OK, although my testing was not very extensive.
anaconda-20.25.1-1.fc20, python-blivet-0.23.1-1.fc20 has been pushed to the Fedora 20 stable repository. If problems still persist, please make note of it in this bug report.
