Description rhaig 2003-02-28 17:00:11 UTC
Description of problem:
Installer allows raid0 of 2 2GB partitions to be set as swap.  Then when trying
to set it to raid1 it complains that the size of the swap is too big, and that
the max size is 2GB.  (which of course was allowed the first time I created the
raid device, and I should be allowed to change it from 4GB to 2GB)

Can delete and re-create RAID device with correct parameters and it works

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:
choose partition with diskdruid during install

Steps to Reproduce:
1.  Create RAID0 swap device from 2 2GB partitions
2.  Edit Raid Device, change raid to raid1, observe error message

Actual results:
error about size of swap being too big

Expected results:
should have seen this error when raid device was originally created, should not
see it when trying to reduce size of device by changing raid type

This is fixed in our more current codebases and will be reflected in future releases
