Description Kjetil T. Homme 2004-03-14 17:51:21 EST
From Bugzilla Helper:
User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux i686; en-US; rv:1.4.1)

Description of problem:
rc.sysinit will not start RAID volumes prior to enabling swap.

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

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. set up md1 as software RAID1.  mkswap /dev/md1
2. add /dev/md1 as swap in /etc/fstab
3. reboot

Actual Results:  the swapon command fails

Expected Results:  the last 10 years I think computers have had enough
RAM so that it is OK to postpone the enabling of swap for a while. 
simply moving the swapon after the raidstart should fix the problem.

This is fixed in the current devel initscripts for FC4.
