Description Alexandre Oliva 2000-10-18 05:20:53 EDT
In disk druid, after creating a couple of raid partitions and a raid0
partition out of them, I decided to change the set of partitions assigned
to swap, so I selected the swap partition and chose `edit'.  I couldn't
make the changes effective because `Ok' (or whatever that button is) would
complain that a mount point was missing.  In fact, the mount point wasn't
marked as `<Swap partition>' as it was when I chose `Linux swap' while
creating the partition.

were you able to "delete" the raid device itself after creation and re-create it
using "Make Raid device" (this time using "swap" as the partition type)...
Comment 2 Alexandre Oliva 2000-10-24 22:26:08 EDT
Yes, that worked.  Please note that I *had* initially created it as a swap
partition, it was Edit that didn't notice that.
Comment 3 Brock Organ 2000-11-07 11:56:17 EST
verified ... choosing to "Edit" an already existing raid device (swap partition)
does NOT fill the mount point with "<Swap Partition>" text, and fails as
described above ... thanks for your report!
