    Question 12.04 Post Install SWAP Issue...

    I've added 12.04 three times now.
    Triple boot on an old desktop w/ Vista(which has serious issues), 10.04LTS, and 12.04LTS.
    Dual boot along side 10.04.
    And, on a new laptop with Windows 7, as dual boot.

    The issue I have is that the swap for the 12.04 always shows as 'unknown'.
    I discovered on the dual boot with 10.04, that if I delete the 'unknown' partition, or format it to swap (even though, only one swap can be shared with more than 1 Ubuntu), it will destroy the grub; and make the computer un-bootable. Thus, the 12.04 will have to be removed altogether.

    So, does anyone out there have this issue, or have an idea why I'm having it?
    I'm posting a gparted screenshot of the laptop Windows7/12.04LTS dual boot.


    Thanks in advance.
