Comment 2 Jay Greguske 2011-08-31 16:04:23 UTC
kickstart added the swap entry in fstab if $(uname -m) == i386. In RHEL 5 it's i686; I've corrected this.

Comment 3 Tomas Kopecek 2011-09-06 08:45:08 UTC
There will be no more AMIs for RHEL 5.6. This problem should be fixed in 5.7 images as Jay fixed it before 5.7 release. Is it right Jay? If yes, we probably can close it as WONTFIX.

Comment 5 Jay Greguske 2011-10-11 21:15:31 UTC
Fixed in the catalog rebuild in October.
