When using "swap --hibernation" option in kickstart, installation fails with "missing size" error. ksvalidate also reports the same error. With RHEL 6 it was working and hibernation option is still listed as a valid option in RHEL 7 Installation Guide.

Create kickstart file with swap --hibernation option and run ksvalidate or actually try to run kickstart installation.

Steps to Reproduce:

This should be in pykickstart-1.99.16 or later, which means 7.2 for sure.  What version of pykickstart are you using?
Comment 3 daniel.schindler 2015-10-03 04:58:57 EDT
pykickstart- on 7.1
Comment 4 Chris Lumens 2015-10-05 13:03:05 EDT
Hm, this is definitely weird.  Are you on Centos or using some other derivative of RHEL?  Did you rebuild pykickstart yourself?  I don't see that particular version in the build system here.  Also, can you please attach your kickstart file, scrubbed of any sensitive information?  Thanks.

We are using Oracle Linux. I will file a bug with Oracle. I thought they were using the same sources :)

I'd like to choose CLOSED NOTOURBUG, but that's not an option here.
