This seems rather useful, and is cleanly done.

What are the odds of getting it into the source tree?

Hi list:

It has been a problem to tell anaconda to not use some swap
devices at install time.  I have created a solution (if you can
call it that) that adds a argument for kickstart in RHEL5.  It
basically tells anaconda : "Do not touch this list of swap
devices".  And anaconda does not use them at install time and does
not add them to /etc/fstab at the end of installation. The
solution involves code for anaconda and for pykickstart.

Patch is attached.  comments greatly appreciated.

Hey dwight:

This is going in for RHEL, but I want to actually fix the bug in fedora.  This would mean ignoring all the swaps that are not stated in the ks files.  Anaconda would scream if there is no swap devs for installation time (swap is needed)  and will not touch anything unless stated in a partition line.
