Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 238880
On boot; swap file do not allow swapon: No access.
Last modified: 2008-05-06 15:34:17 EDT
I'm not able to find the correct name for my platform: AMD64-PC Fedora 6,
updated 10 min ago. And I can not find a component for booting.
Description of problem:
When booting I get this message in Norwegian language:
Aktiverer swap-områder fra /etc/fstab: swapon:
cannot open /etc/fstab: Ikke tilgang
I then try to translate to English:
Activating swap-area from /etc/fstab: swapon:
cannot open /etc/fstab: No access
I boot up and run GParted, right-click on: /dev/hda3/ Linux swap 2,96Gb, and
shoose swapon. Then the swap is on.
My line for swap in /etc/fstab:
LABEL=SWAP-hda3 swap swap defaults 0 0
The command 'll /etc/fstab':
-rw-r--r-- 1 root root 1225 mai 3 18:44 /etc/fstab
I must add: I doubled my swap-file frog 1.5Gb to 3Gb after adding memory chip,
it was 792Mb and now it is 1,5Gb. I think I should have the swap-file double
size of the memory???
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
The command as root: swapon -a, does not work either, only turning on the swap
file by the program GParted.
