Description of problem:
I made a new fresh install from FC4.
After the installation has finished successfully and the machine rebooted I finsihed the steps in firstboot then found the following in /etc/fstab file:
LABEL=5 ^M SpotFunctio swap swap defaults 0 0
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Just installed FC4
Expected Results: Not to find the above crap in the /etc/fstab file.
I reproduced this, but it wasn't spot "^M SpotFunctio", it was more like "^M
<random binary here>".
It was there since install on a brand new FC4 machine.
I believe this is related to bug 170895, as I also experience this and it also
involves damage to fstab.
This report targets the FC3 or FC4 products, which have now been EOL'd.
Could you please check that it still applies to a current Fedora release, and
either update the target product or close it ?
Have been unable to reproduce since on FC4, not currently upgrading original box.
Fedora Core 4 is no longer maintained.
Setting status to "INSUFFICIENT_DATA". If you can reproduce this bug in the
current Fedora release, please reopen this bug and assign it to the
corresponding Fedora version.
