Description si22673 1999-02-18 21:44:15 UTC
This is just an annoying bug!

When installing RH, the installer asks for a swap partition
and there are times when I don't wan't any (and linux
doesn't require any). So I change the type of an existing
partition to Swap and when the installer prompts if I wan't
to use it (mkswap) I just say no. Whell, the bug is that
first it shouldn't require any swap partition (just say that
it is advisable) and then, it's no longer required??

I just consider this annoying, and a problem occurs when I
don't have any partition to change to swap and I can't
continue instalation...

I do know this is nothing compared to the work you do but I
decided to commit it anyway.

Thank you for your time and I thank you for making Linux so

		Luciano Rocha,
