Fedora Core 6 Live doesn't automaticly swap on linux swap partition
Last modified: 2013-03-05 22:49:58 EST
Description of problem:
The harddisk of my pc has a linux ext3 partition and a linux swap partition. The
Fedora Core 6 Live CD doesn't create a swap-file.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Every time after booting the liveCD, no swap
Steps to Reproduce:
1. boot live CD
Swap on /dev/hda5
The command 'swapon /dev/hda5' takes care of the problem.
Ps. just guessing on the component.

enabling swap, especially on systems with "less" memory.
