Description Mike Cohler 2006-05-04 03:46:21 EDT
Description of problem: During the boot the swap partition gives an
error/warning - as per the lines in the messages file here:
May  4 08:14:44 gestalt kernel: EXT3-fs: mounted filesystem with ordered data mode.
May  4 08:14:44 gestalt kernel: version 0 swap is no longer supported. Use
mkswap -v1 /dev/sda7
May  4 08:14:44 gestalt kernel: ip_tables: (C) 2000-2006 Netfilter Core Team

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):This happens in the
current kernel 2.6.16-1.2107_FC5smp, but also with the kernel that came with the

How reproducible:Every time

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Boot machine
2. During boot ( without rhgb as rhgb hangs with this kernel ) just after mkinit
there is a red failed line
3. Check messages file to find the warning about swap now needing mkswap. Same
line appears in dmesg output.
Actual results: Machine continues to boot.

Expected results:Boot should proceed without the swap warning.

Additional info:This is a freshly installed FC5 system on a Dell 5150 with Intel
Core Duo processor.

The df -h output looks normal:
Filesystem            Size  Used Avail Use% Mounted on
/dev/sda6              19G  5.3G   13G  30% /

/dev/sda8              63G  9.3G   50G  16% /home

The /etc/fstab looks normal also:

2107 was *really* bad on so many levels.
Should be fixed in 2111.
