How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:

/etc/fstab contains

LABEL=/                 /                       ext3    
defaults        1 1

I have autp partitioned under Fedora Core 1 as

  hde1     1    13   102   ext3
  hde2    14  9664 75705   ext3
  hde3  9665  9729   510   linux-swap

I get the error:

  Error enabling swap device hdg3.  No such file or directory

  NOTE:  I do not have a device hdgX.  I have hde

My installation is Core 1 and also fully updated.

I have tried noprobe, text, C3boot-2.iso.  Everything stops at
exactly the same place.  
Actual results:

In fedora core 1 can you give me the out put of the following:

cat /proc/swaps

If you edit your fstab to s/hdg3/hde3/ does Fedora Core 1 boot and
setup swap correctly?  

Anaconda is quite rightly complaining that it can't find the device.
Has any h/w config changed at all since your original install.

Comment 2 Gary W. Sherwin 2004-07-20 14:19:24 UTC
The outpuput of "cat /proc/swaps is:

    Filename           Type       Size   Used    Priority
    /dev/hde3          partition  522104 89424   -1

I missed the typo in fstab, and have corrected it.  The machine still
boots correctly.  I have to wait till I get home this evening, to try 
the install again, As I can't do that remotely.

This was a Win-2000-Server machine which had 2 disks.  The system
disk crashed and was replaced with a new drive.  The installation
was made with the new disk and a second old quantum 3GB disk attached
that was formatted ntfs.  That disk has since been removed as it 
would not function, even under knoppix.  My Fedora Core 1 system 
seems to be functioning reasonably on its own.  http://sherwin.ws
with web, ftp, sendmail and port forwarding running.  I have 
attempted to install as a Fedora Core 2 cd boot and get as far as the
point where it correctly detects the Core 1 installation on hde, but 
when I tell it to continue, that is when it looks for the swap on hdg 
and of course fails.
