After doing the retorecon, I'm getting fewer messages but swap is not
coming on at boot.

Why doesn't "swapon -a -e" work?

Hi Rick!

Lets go back a bit.  What is in /etc/fstab?
# Mine is a bit strange me doing quad boot FC5, Ubuntu, Suse, and Sun.

tod tod-desktop:~$ cat /etc/fstab

---------------------------------------------------
Is the device in fstab what you want and will the options defined
work?  In my case /dev/hda2 was made and chosen by Solaris and I
simply copied, pasted the line in Solaris to this Ubunut fstab.
Anyway, I think it is likely fstab will have a clue.

Good Hunting!

Tod
