Description Paul van Gelder 2007-04-12 17:23:19 EDT
Description of problem:
The harddisk of my pc has a linux ext3 partition and a linux swap partition. The
Fedora Core 6 Live CD doesn't create a swap-file.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
FC-6-i386-livecd-1.iso

How reproducible:
Every time after booting the liveCD, no swap

Steps to Reproduce:
1. boot live CD
2.
3.
  
Actual results:
No swap

Expected results:
Swap on /dev/hda5

Additional info:
The command 'swapon /dev/hda5' takes care of the problem.
Ps. just guessing on the component.

This is somewhat intentional so that we don't end up disturbing the state at all
of an existing systems.  But at the same time, I can definitely see the value in
enabling swap, especially on systems with "less" memory.

I'm not sure how to check, but you would definitely want to make this
conditional on the swap partition not containing hibernation data from an
existing system.

The Fedora 8 live CD will auto-enable swap (unless otherwise requested)
