remove warning of missing swap from expert partitioner

Feature state

openSUSE Distribution
Rejected Information


There are requests to remove the warning about a missing swap device from the expert partitioner for systems with only SSDs. I want to go one step further and remove the warning altogether since RAM has increased so much in the past.

You need a valid swap partition in order to let suspend to disk (ACPI S4) work. A swap file would be possible, too, however, this is not implemented/integrated into our infrastructure and would be worth yet another feature.

While RAM set sizes may have increased for servers, netbooks still have the same lousy configurations as 3 years ago (1 GB RAM), which firefox fills easily especially when flash pages are open.

The warning message should stay - it does not impact the ability to install the system.
