Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 53379
installer uses NON type-82 partition for swap
Last modified: 2007-04-18 12:36:57 EDT
Description of Problem:
I had a partition which had been used for swap (formatted for swap) but I
had stopped using it and changed the partition type from "82" to "83".
When in (clean) installed rc2, it allocated and used the partition for swap .
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. allocate and format a partition for swap but change its type to 83
2. install RC2
3. After reboot, check /etc/fstab
type-83 partition used for swap
type 83 partitions ignore for swap
identifying the partition table types are unreliable for determining how to use
contents of partitions. Format the partition as something other than swap.
