Hello all


I started to notice that when my fedora core 3 server reboots all goes well till it get to the part where is enable swap space then it sits there for up to 5 min then continue to boot. any idea what the pause might be??


BTW it does say that the swap space loads [ok] it doesnt freeze till after it says ok ...so i am not sure if it is the swap part freezing or not unsure.gif

Well, you could remake your swap space just to ensure that that's not the problem. Run fdisk -l (that's a small L) to get a list of partitions on your drive, find which one your swap space is (for example, /dev/hda3) and remake your swap with:

> mkswap /dev/hda3
> swapon

Reboot, and see if that did the trick. If not, what comes after the swap space initialization? Also, check your /var/log/messages and /var/log/dmesg to look for any errors.

That could be your problem, it could be freezing on that drive if you're mounting it somewhere. Try taking that drive out of your /etc/fstab file and rebooting and see if the problem still exists.
