View Full Version : [ubuntu] Swap partition doesn't work! What do I do?

January 17th, 2009, 10:17 PM
My /etc/fstab looks like this

# /etc/fstab: static file system information.
# <file system> <mount point> <type> <options> <dump> <pass>
proc /proc proc defaults 0 0
# /dev/sda2
UUID=436bd366-bfea-4274-9458-26addfb383d8 / ext3 relatime,errors=remount-ro 0 1
/dev/scd0 /media/cdrom0 udf,iso9660 user,noauto,exec,utf8 0 0
/dev/sda3 swap swap pri=1 0 0

And here's a screenshot:


And here's swapon -s

joh@Johs-zepto ~ $ swapon -s
Filename Type Size Used Priority
/dev/sda3 partition 6144852 0 1

Why won't the swap work? I tried running something called uswsusp and it said that I had no active swap partition

Mine wouldn't work either so I said screw it. I allocated it back to the system.

I need swap for hibernate so I can't really just screw it...
