If I specifically specify an existing regular partition or logical volume as swap and

Regression in kickstart? I can't do this in the GUI. I have to reformat swap for some
My speculation is wrong in any case with GUI install, swap is still put in the fstab with
anaconda 20.25.1-1 and RHBZ 1017509 still applies.
Of course if I have another system install into different partitions
and it is also using that swap by UUID, it now will be screwed.
I agree, not friendly.
Sometimes using UUID is not a good idea. This problem has been
bugzill'ed. I was hoping the "swap-fix" would help with that but I believe
it will not.
So then the question is, if the disk is GPT, can/should systemd use UniquePartitionGUID in
the GPT for swap partitions rather than the swap volume format UUID? The
UniquePartitionGUID is more stable.
