Description James Bourne 2005-05-19 14:41:54 UTC
From Bugzilla Helper:
User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux i686; en-US; rv:1.7.8) Gecko/20050513 Fedora/1.0.4-1.3.1 Firefox/1.0.4

Description of problem:
During upgrade (anaconda) did not find and activate the swap partition that was in /etc/fstab as label=SWAP-hda3.  This was added by the fc3 install (clean install).  When anaconda did not activate the swap on a 256M system it would try to fork and crash.

Work around was to change the swap line to /dev/hda3 in /etc/fstab then reboot to perform the upgrade.

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

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. change anaconda to recognize label=SWAP-diskdev

FC3 didn't ship with what ended up being the final format for the swap label :/
 anaconda will now try to convert from the old to the new format to help this. 
We probably won't do so anymore as of FC5, though.
