I've recently installed Febora 8 x86_64 on an AMD Athlon 64 running on an Asus A8V Deluxe motherboard.
Occasionally, boot-up get's stuck - The progress bar on the Fedora splash screen does not progress. Pressing Ctrl+Alt+F1 reveals that it's stuck in 'enabling /etc/swaps'. After several resets it then boots up fine.
I was therefore wondering whether anyone has come across this issue and, if so, whether you'd have any pointers on how to resolve it.
