Expected Results

Template:Templateartitioning results

  1. Anaconda warns that system performance may suffer without a swap partition
  2. Anaconda allows the installation to complete successfully for systems with sufficient system memory (consult the Hardware Overview section of the release notes for minimum hardware requirements). For systems with insufficient memory, anaconda must require the presence of a swap partition.
  3. Reboot successfully into installed system
  4. Confirm that no swap partition is in use (/proc/swaps)
