Warning about mounting swap during boot
Last modified: 2015-01-04 17:27:00 EST
Description of problem: During the boot the swap partition gives an
error/warning - as per the lines in the messages file here:
May 4 08:14:44 gestalt kernel: EXT3-fs: mounted filesystem with ordered data mode.
May 4 08:14:44 gestalt kernel: version 0 swap is no longer supported. Use
mkswap -v1 /dev/sda7
May 4 08:14:44 gestalt kernel: ip_tables: (C) 2000-2006 Netfilter Core Team
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):This happens in the
current kernel 2.6.16-1.2107_FC5smp, but also with the kernel that came with the
How reproducible:Every time
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Boot machine
2. During boot ( without rhgb as rhgb hangs with this kernel ) just after mkinit
there is a red failed line
3. Check messages file to find the warning about swap now needing mkswap. Same
line appears in dmesg output.
Actual results: Machine continues to boot.
Expected results:Boot should proceed without the swap warning.
Additional info:This is a freshly installed FC5 system on a Dell 5150 with Intel
Core Duo processor.
The df -h output looks normal:
Filesystem Size Used Avail Use% Mounted on
/dev/sda6 19G 5.3G 13G 30% /
tmpfs 247M 0 247M 0% /dev/shm
/dev/sda8 63G 9.3G 50G 16% /home
The /etc/fstab looks normal also:
LABEL=/ / ext3 defaults 1 1
devpts /dev/pts devpts gid=5,mode=620 0 0
tmpfs /dev/shm tmpfs defaults 0 0
LABEL=/home /home ext3 defaults 1 2
proc /proc proc defaults 0 0
sysfs /sys sysfs defaults 0 0
/dev/sda7 swap swap defaults 0 0

2107 was *really* bad on so many levels.
Should be fixed in 2111.
