Can you attach your /etc/fstab?

Here is my /etc/fstab. The last two lines (kudzu) was not in at the time of the
attemted update.
Comment 4 Michael Fulbright 2003-06-18 16:55:12 EDT
Is /dev/hda6 still a swap partition? It seems to be causing the problems with
the installation failing.
Comment 5 Kim Bisgaard 2003-06-28 10:23:35 EDT
Yes it is still a swap partition.

I worked around the problem - the hard way - by installing instead of upgrading.
Installing into /, /usr and /boot partitions, accepting a too small swap
partition warning, and then re-enabling my swap file.

Fixed in CVS
