I'm using ubuntu 10.10 dual boot with XP. I planned to increase the size of swap partition. So I delete the swap partition. And I move the partition right so that swap partition can get 2 GB.
Then I shutdown the system without editing the appropriate UUID for swap in "/etc/fstab" file.
So when I start the computer It said "Continue to wait; Press S to skip; Press M to manual ... something" . But it does not respond for any thing (For pressing S or M).
Using live CD I resize and formatted the raw partition to linux-swap with GParted Partition Editor.The fstab file looked different in live CD So I tried recovery mode of Ubuntu.There I edited the fstab file with correct UUID for swapping.
After I reboot the System it never finishes booting
In the output of fdisk command the start sector(or block I don't know what it is) of swap partition is same as end value of consecutive partition.
So I made some space between swap partition and next partition(which is NTFS partion and not a system partition). I have updated the UUID in fstab file.
But it is again booting up continuously or infinitely
What might be the problem ?How to get rid of this ?
The output of the fdisk command

I can start the Ubuntu in recovery mode.
I've mounted the filesystem located in the hard drive at mount point /mnt. The kern.log file(/mnt/var/log/kern.log) content is in pastebin.the link is kern.log
The fstab file(/mnt/etc/fstab) content is fstab
I pressed break key while splash screen is showing.It shows this line:
(process:311):GLib-WARNING ** :getpwuid_r(): failed due to unknown user id (0)
Then some messages repeated thrice.I again pressed break key the splash screen shown again.After few minutes When I pressed break key that messages repeated more.
I've noted and it is here.Some texts can be missing there.
