Description Hu Zhang 2015-05-25 09:43:33 UTC
+++ This bug was initially created as a clone of Bug #1224667 +++

Description of problem:
"file" fails to get the whole information of the new swap partition. It misses the label, UUID and some other info. This works well on x86. This also exits on ppc64.

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

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Create a new swap partition.
$ cd /tmp
$ truncate -s 1G swap
$ mkswap /tmp/swap
Setting up swapspace version 1, size = 1024 MiB (1073676288 bytes)
no label, UUID=b7ad4bd7-7a6b-47e9-b1fd-5ad0ea973d3c

2. get the swap info.
$ file /tmp/swap 
/tmp/swap: Linux/ppc swap file                                                            

Actual results:
Described as step.2. It fails to get the label, UUID, version and some other info.

Expected results:
It should returns some info like blew:
$ file /tmp/swap
swap: Linux/aarch64 swap file (new style), version 1 (4K pages), size 262143 pages, no label, UUID=4f7874fc-e2a0-4c86-9bc3-b54b5ad19d5a
