Description Bastien Nocera 2006-03-10 10:20:10 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.
