An installation which includes a disk-based swap partition (not included by default since Fedora 33).


  1. Prepare a test system with a working, supported storage device of sufficient size for a Fedora install, and a Fedora installation medium.

How to test

  1. Boot the installer using any available means.
  2. Proceed to the installer's main screen, making sensible choices, and enter the Installation Destination screen.
  3. Ensure only the single target device you prepared is selected as the installation target disk.
  4. Ensure the Custom option is selected under Storage Configuration, and complete this screen.
  5. On the MANUAL PARTITIONING screen, delete all existing partitions (if any).
  6. Click the Click here to create them automatically link
  7. Reduce the size of the root partition so there is a gigabyte or two of unassigned space
  8. Create a new partition and set its mount point as swap (note: not /swap)
  9. Complete the installation process, making sensible selections for all other installer options.
  10. Boot the installed system.

Expected Results

  1. The expected partition layout should be created on the target device(s).
  2. The install process should complete successfully and the installed system should boot as expected.
  3. The installation should complete successfully
  4. The disk-based swap partition should be active (you can check /proc/swaps or the output of swapon --show)
