No CLR_SWAP yet clr-installer refuses to proceed with "CLR_SWAP must be <= 8GiB"

Hello,
the GUI installer and
the text installer clr-installer

of the Clear Linux* OS Desktop refuses to install
in both Safe (Install button is inactive)
or Advanced Mode (Confirm button is inactive)

with a warning “CLR_SWAP must be <= 8GiB”.
This is true even:

  • if I have no partition labelled CLR_SWAP.
  • if I have a partition labelled CLR_SWAP of size 4GiB.

I have tracked down this message to the file


and one relevant variable is maxSwapSize.

Could it be clr-installer is confused by the presence of existing swap partitions?

Could someone try it out on their system with a preexisting swap partition?

Q1: Could it be clr-installer is confused by the presence of existing swap partitions?
Self-answer A1: Yes, clr-installer is confused by the presence of existing swap partitions.

Proof: After the non-clear swap partition was deleted, clr-installer was able to proceed.
