RE: RHEL AS4 server hangs indefinetly after displaying "LoadingSwapSpace [ok]" during boot.



Try booting with a CD-ROM. I don't know if Red HAT CDs support this, but I
have done this often with knoppix and phlak. Once you boot to CD, mount the
HD and run mkswap. I have actually never ran mkswap in this manner, but it
should work fine.

Hi,

mkswap is used to create swap area.  I can do that only if I can get the
system booted.

Please suggest,
