Description Kelly Carmichael 2006-03-24 14:08:24 EST
Description of problem:

missing utility to query swap partition label 

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. make a swap partition with parameter -L swap
2. now try to find the label of that swap partition without having to mkswap again
Actual results:

not able to retrieve the label from a swap partition.
mkswap will replace the label but no utility is available to fetch the label.

Expected results:

e2label should be able to identify that the partition is a swap partition, or
another util should be written to read the label from a swap partition.

Additional info:

Please, see "man blkid(8)". The e2label util works with ext2/ext3 filesystem only.

# blkid /dev/hda3
/dev/hda3: TYPE="swap" LABEL="SWAP-hda3"
