Description Raymond Mancy 2012-09-04 08:57:31 EDT
Description of problem:

the KS meta var 'swapsize' has no effect unless a <partition/> 
is specified

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


How reproducible:


Steps to Reproduce:
1.Insert swapsize as ks meta var
Actual results:

It's ignored unless you have also specified a partition

Expected results:

It should create the swap partition with the value from the swapsize variable

Additional info:

Perhaps we could just do this

Bulk reassignment of issues as Bill has moved to another team.

In testing this I discovered that swapsize does not actually do anything, I think because we are also passing --recommended at the same time so Anaconda ignores our requested size.

Patch updated.

A better test case is probably:
1. Schedule a job that requests 10GB swap, on a system with >20GB disk:
<recipe ks_meta="swapsize=10240"...
  <disk><size op="gt;" size="20" units="GB"/></disk>
2. Wait for system to be reserved
3. Log in and check size of swap partition, using fdisk -l or free

Expected results:
Swap partition is 10GB.
