Calamares swap

Hello forum, yesterday I reinstalled EOS with the newest ISO, and found something weird

In Welcome app when you boot into the live usb, there is a partition magager (gparted).
In this app, I set the partitions and then initiated the install.

During the install, there is also a step to setup the partitions, but I couldn’t mark the swap partition as swap, the box was not showing this option.

So I had to remove the partitions, then recreate through calamares, and it showed correctly.
Unfortunately I couldn’t take a screenshot, but as far as I remember, gparted formats is as linuxswap and calamares as swap…

So, in case this happens to someone, just create the partitions through calamares because if you do it through gparted, you won’t be able to tick the swap option during install
