  The creation of swap space in usb partition failed message during
  amd64+mac installation

Status in “ubiquity” package in Ubuntu:

Bug description:
  The creation of swap space in partition 6 of SCSI3(0,0,0) (sdb) failed
  message was displayed during amd 64 quantal desktop installation. sdb
  represents usb in this system

  1. Boot using usb live session on a machine where there is already a quantal installation
  2. Start the installer from the live session
  3. Perform the side by side installation.
  4. The aboe message box will be displayed (screen shot is also attached)

  ( I remember inserting the usb before the installation on the
  available quantal, if this information is of any help)
