no swap on bootup and system locking up
recently i upgraded to Ubuntu 8.04. Before doing so I had some problems with the system slowing down and not being able to do anything for a minute or two.
Since the upgrade I realized I needed a bigger swap partition. I used gparted to expand the partition. Afterwards i ran mkswap and swapon. Now when I boot there is not swap mounted. I have to rerun swapon. How do I get the system to boot with the swap mounted?
I have used system monitor to try to get a hold on what is causing the system to lock up. Before the upgrade i could trace it to insufficient swap. Now it is locking up so I cannot even switch to the monitor to see what is happening. I hear the hard drive in action but the system locks for as long as I let it go before hitting the reset button. What can I do to test the system to see what is happening?
