View Full Version : FC5 Still Looking for Old Swap After Partition Move

I finally got the courage to dump XP (woohoo!), and I got through all the partition moving just peachy and got Grub reconfigured. However, FC on bootup is giving me the message of "cannot find resume device LABEL=/dev/hda6" because I haven't moved the swap yet.

So, I edited the fstab to my new location (hda2), but nothing happened! Is there something I'm missing? I'm sure there's some other config file to edit, I just don't know which one...

As root, run fdisk to make sure your partition is set to swap. Then run mkswap and swapon.

swapon says device busy, even though the swap isn't on...

How would I go about telling FC not to look for the old swap, too?

Thanks in advance!

Make sure that partition isn't mounted. Then make sure it's set to swap (using fdisk). Then follow the rest of the steps.
