Hello Sumanthsv,

Can you not just add the line logvol swap --fstype="swap" --name=lv_swap --vgname=sysvg --size=$act_mem within the partitioning layout that you have for the others?

Failing that, perhaps ensure that the swap volume is the last item on the partition list and then grow it on first boot.



Just a thought,
Robin

HI rbatte1,

Thanks for the reply.
I have removed the extra white spaces in the kickstart file, which resolved the issue

Thanks

Glad you got a solution. Thank you for telling us how. Maybe someone else will have the same in future and can re-use it.



Kind regards,
Robin
