Setting up swap partitions in rc2 does not create an extended partition at
sda5, it will only go to sda4.
A linux native partition must be put in to force an extended partitioning
scheme on that drive.
Steps to Reproduce:
1. add 3 swap partitions on one drive
2. the fourth will not go into extended mode, it will be primary
3. no more partitions can be made
Actual Results: No more partitions could be made
Expected Results: Ability to make more partitions
We (Red Hat) should really try to fix this before next release.
Brent please verify this behavior.
Verified this behavior. Thanks for your report.
Fixed in internal tree.
