Problem with activating swap partition
This is my first try at installing gentoo, have read many stories that its quite a challenge first time round, ive lasted 10mins and now im stuck.
Have partitioned the hard drive with the basic boot, swap, root and have have applied the ext3 filesystem to all of them.
Its when i try to activate the swap partition i get an error message.
I type - "swapon /dev/hda2"
And the reply is - "Unable to find swap-space signature"
"swapon: /dev/hda2: Invalid argument"
Any help on this would be great!
