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



It is possible that the problem is somewhere in the next rules, but hangs at 'swap space'.

Try to boot with knoppix or a rescue-cd and check the logfiles after a chroot of the system. Sometimes it is possible to press 'ctrl-alt-f12 or ctrl-f12' and then 'enter', the boot continues.

The problem could even be a bad or lost mountpoint.
I had it on RHES4 with a bad smb mount in the /etc/fstab.

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,

Hi,

A Linux server (RHEL AS4 on Dell poweredge 1650), is hanging while
booting.
It displays the following and hangs indefintely.

Loading Swap Space [ok]

How do I go about troubleshooting this issue.  Please suggest.

I too have had this same difficulty.  It is especially noticable when I
move from one kernel version to the next.  In order to work around this
issue, I simply ran mkswap on the swap partition.  Anyone know what the
real issue is?
