This is my first time using Ubuntu (Natty 11.04), and I'm having a problem. Even though the swap partition exists, and set to load in
fstab, it's still not being mounted.
fdisk returns this for the swap partition:
file system: /dev/sda5 start: 1 end: 244 blocks: 1951744 id: 82 system: Linux swap / Solaris
and in my
fstab it says
file system: /dev/sda5 mount point: none type: swap options: sw dump: 0 pass: 0
and I can load it fine with
swapon /dev/sda5 but it just won't load at boot.
Is there more information that I can give to help troubleshoot? I dont know what other info could be useful
As requested, full
# <file system> <mount point> <type> <options> <dump> <pass> proc /proc proc nodev,noexec,nosuid 0 0 /dev/sda6 / ext4 errors=remount-ro 0 1 /dev/sda5 none swap sw 0 0 /dev/sr1 none udf rw,noauto 0 0
I was looking at the system log and I saw this, not sure what it means or if it's normal but:
Apr 29 17:57:24 caelan-ubuntu os-prober: debug: running /usr/lib/os-probes/50mounted-tests on /dev/sda5 Apr 29 17:57:24 caelan-ubuntu 50mounted-tests: debug: /dev/sda5 is a swap partition; skipping
mountall: Did not receive a reply. Possible causes include: the remote application did not send a reply, the message bus security policy blocked the reply, the reply timeout expired, or the network connection was broken. mountall: Connection is closed
swap finished ... local 4/4 remote 0/0 virtual 12/12 swap 0/0
not sure, still not loading swap... still can be added in commandline, and my windows partition is being mounted on boot, and that is in the fstab too.
