Right I have sorted the swap issue.
After not getting anywhere with $ swapon -a (this mounts swap partitions in fstab). I looked at :
$ info mkswap
As I really did not know what I was doing I thought I would play with the mkswap -L(give swap a label) as /etc/fstab refers to labels. I had confirmed using
$ fdisk -l
that the swap partition was already there.
Using this command in my case:
$ mkswap -L swap /dev/sdb7 (my swap partition)
brought up the following:
I tried then the swapon- a command followed by swapon -s still no swap partition recorded in /proc/swaps.
I then thought as UUID is used to mount the / partition in the F9 /etc/fstab I would edit the line:
LABEL=SWAP-sdb7 /swap swap defaults 0 0
UUID=efdf46cb-df25-4689-aa0c-ff7cda520081 /swap swap defaults 0 0
I then used:
$ swapon -a
$ swapon -s
Filename Type Size Used Priority
/dev/sdb7 partition 2570348 0 -1
Now checking system manager I have swap being recorded and everything seems fine. I think that the problem may have been that I was reusing the original swap partition set up when I installed FC6, so perhaps F9 is not picking up old swap partitions.Not certain if I should submit a bug on this as again this may be just my set up.
Reference my problem with partitions not showing up as user. I had to remove the livna nvidia xx packages as it killed my x. Going back to F9 nvidia drivers has solved this problem. Though no matter how I set up the partitions , on next boot they get spread everywhere. Desktop does not seem to be able to remember where they are put.
