Calamres bug when no swap selected

This isn’t an EndeavourOS bug, but seems specific to Calamares as I’ve now identified it with three different OSs. I’ve submitted the bug report to the Calamares team, but I thought it might be a good idea to post it here as well in case someone else comes across it…

When the ‘no swap’ selection is chosen in Calamares, the installer still creates the below entry in /etc/fstab for swap

UUID= swap swap defaults,noatime 0 2

I’ve observed this on three distributions now, using both manual and automatic partitioning.

This will create a 90 second hang during boot while its trying to process this line in /etc/fstab. Until the bug is fixed, removing the line from fstab as su will resolve the problem.
