Description Jeff Lane 2001-08-04 14:12:42 EDT
When adding swapfile during upgrade on an IBM thinkpad with 192MB memory,
(upgrade from 6.2), the existing swap partition was 192MB.  Anaconda
requested the creation of a 192MB swap file to augment the existing swap
space.  After clicking next, then back, Anaconda noted that there was now
384MB swap available, but it still wanted to create another 192MB swap
file.  If the 'don't create file' option is selected, it warns anaconda may
not work if the swap file is not created.

Desired Result:
Anaconda will recognize that it has created the swap file, and will not
prompt to create another one

We (Red Hat) should try to fix this for the next release.
Comment 2 Matt Wilson 2001-08-07 11:49:08 EDT
I'll get this one.
