It's clear swap is not on. I think installing and running acpitool to
try to suspend to disk screwed something up.

[root ophth-bilora chippy]# cat /proc/meminfo | grep -i swap
SwapCached:          0 kB
SwapTotal:           0 kB
SwapFree:            0 kB

[root ophth-bilora chippy]# /sbin/swapon -sv

[root ophth-bilora chippy]# dmesg | grep swap
Kernel command line: ro root=/dev/VolGroup00/LogVol00 rhgb quiet
audit(1158897380.741:4): avc:  denied  { unlink } for  pid=1852
comm="swapon" name="blkid.tab.old" dev=dm-0 ino=1733754
scontext=system_u:system_r:fsadm_t tcontext=root:object_r:etc_t

Any thoughts on how to fix this?
