Anaconda fails to initialize swap ("busy" is sometimes given) every install attempt.
Last modified: 2007-11-30 17:12:15 EST
Description of problem:
Anaconda fails to initialize swap and drops the install.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
How reproducible: Boot from Gnome Live CD and begin 'custom' install. There are
two 80-gig HD's with install replacing T-1 on sda1, while swap is on sdb6.
sda1 - 18 gig Fedora8-T1
sda2 - 18 gig Linux Mint
sda3 - 18 gig open
balance of drive 'extended' & open
sdb1 - 15 gig Ubuntu
sdb2 - 20 gig Fedora7
sdb3 - 20 gig SAM linux
sdb4 - extended
sdb5 - 20 gig Debian
sdb6 - 1034meg swap
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Boot Live CD
2. Select Install From CD
Actual results: Failure due to swap (yes, I've tried formatting it as part of
the setup and it's recognized every time)
Expected results: Normal install as happened with T-1 and prior versions of
Fedora (all set up as ext3).
Fixed post-test2. Run swapoff before the install for test2 (and noted in the
release notes for test2)
SOLVED: "Known Issues" lists solution.
