Re: Fix fallocate issue on cloud-init 19.4 for Fedora 33 cloud images

[Date Prev][Date Next][Thread Prev][Thread Next][Date Index][Thread Index]


tl;dr Creating a swapfile with fallocate should work on XFS now.

Found this thread from about 3 years ago

There were a few things that needed work to fix it, and I'm not sure
which one finally did it, but this 2019 patch was part of that series:

That is in 5.7, which is what Fedora 33 shipped with.

Anyway...even though I can't nail down exactly when it got fixed,
today I asked the XFS maintainer about all of this and he said
fallocate'd swapfiles should work. And I also tested it with kernel
5.11.16 and 5.12 and it does work.
