Re: mkswap on every boot

I'm running FC2 and have my swap setup on a separate drive. It was formatted as a swap and everything looks good in /etc/fstab. However every time I reboot I have to run a mkswap and swapon against it. Is there any thoughts on this? Or is there anyway I can get that done on boot?


Does fdisk report the partition as being of type 82 (Linux swap)?


Yes it does. type 82 Linux Swap


What exactly does your fstab entry look like?
grep swap /var/log/messages # yields what?
