Description Steve Scheider 2010-06-12 13:54:48 UTC
Description of problem:
The installer requires a bit of granularity with linux swap partitions.  It could be told which were available for this installations use or a feature could prevent a partition from being used by the installer.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
n/a.  Distro that I used was Fedora 13 with gnome.

How reproducible:
Very.  Create a drive with multiple linux swap partitions using gpartd and install Fedora.  The install will use them all as entries in fstab.

Steps to Reproduce:
1.  see above
2.
3.
  
Actual results:


Expected results:


Additional info:
This is more an annoyance, since you can trace it out using the UUIDs in fstab and a ls -al /dev/disk/by-UUID/*, then remove the undesired entries.  However, other os's do have a prevention mechanism in thier distros.
