Problem with loading swap partition, etc
I think my system is running without swap.
When I hit mount, I get:
rootfs on / type rootfs (rw) /dev/root on / type reiserfs (rw,noatime) /proc on /proc type proc (rw,nodiratime) /sys on /sys type sysfs (rw) /dev/hda7 on /home type reiserfs (rw,noatime) /dev/hdb1 on /mnt/bridge type vfat (rw,nodiratime,nosuid,nodev,noexec,fmask=0033,dmask=0033) none on /dev/pts type devpts (rw) /dev/cdrom on /mnt/cdrom type supermount (ro,dev=/dev/cdrom,fs=iso9660,tray_lock=onwrite,--,iocharset=iso8859-1) /dev/scd0 on /mnt/cdwriter type supermount (ro,dev=/dev/scd0,fs=iso9660,tray_lock=onwrite,--,iocharset=iso8859-1) usbfs on /proc/bus/usb type usbfs (rw)
root@yos vasudevan # mount -t swap /dev/hda3 swap mount: mount point swap does not exist
/dev/hda4 / reiserfs notail,noatime 1 1 /dev/hda7 /home reiserfs notail,noatime 1 2 /dev/hda3 swap swap defaults 0 0
Please advise. Thanks.Be happy. Life is too short to be unhappy!

Your swap file won't be mounted unless it's needed by the system, so if you have a lot of RAM, the swap partition will likely never be called up.
I have 1-gig of RAM and the swap file has never been used. Some users don't bother to install a swap partition at all. I have a 512meg swap file, but again, it's never used.
