Description of problem:
After installing the latest kernel (2.6.7-1.494.2.2) the system
doesn't activate my swap partition.
The swap partition is /dev/hde8 (S-ATA device).
A workaround is to /sbin/swapon /dev/sda8.

The problem occured the first time on kernel 2.6.7-1.494.2.2, earlier
kernel still work.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. /sbin/swapon /dev/hde8
2. cat /proc/swaps -> empty, no swap partition activated

Actual Results:  swapon: /dev/hde8: No such device or address

Expected Results:  activated swap partition

Same problem occurs in kernel-2.6.8-1.521
Comment 2 Dave Jones 2005-02-24 01:44:32 EST
your /etc/fstab likely still references your sata drive as /dev/hdX, whereas in
2.6.7+ its now /dev/sdX
