Re: Controller partition order?

I'm building a bunch of virtual machines and I want to make sure that the swap
partition comes first on the disk. Sometimes we need to expand storage on VMs
and this is much harder if the swap partition is after the / partition. Is
there a way with the partition command to control where on the disk a
partition goes?

We use something like this:

zerombr yes
clearpart --all --initlabel
part /boot --fstype "ext3" --size=100 --asprimary
part /tmp --fstype "ext3" --size=2048 --asprimary
part / --fstype "ext3" --size=1 --grow
%include /tmp/swap.cfg

swap is dynamically generated during the bootstrap process. The configuration creates the following partitions:

/dev/sda1   /boot
/dev/sda2   /tmp
/dev/sda3   swap
/dev/sda4   extended
/dev/sda5   /

I am not aware of any other way to make anaconda honor the position of the swap partition.
