Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 185087
fsck unnecessarily looks up swap devices' labels
Last modified: 2015-01-07 19:12:19 EST
When the swap devices in /etc/fstab are defined with labels, rather than device
nodes (eg. LABEL=SWAP-sda3 instead of /dev/sda3), then fsck will look up the
device even though it can't fsck swap devices.
For example, "fsck -N /boot" will look through all the devices looking for
SWAP-sda3. Patch attached.
