Enabling /etc/fstab swaps


Dear all,

I am very much confused about the time taken during system booting.
My screen goes blank for few minutes during booting to print the login page.

When I press ctrl+alt+f1 it shows and hangs at

Enabling /etc/fstab swaps

Please let me know how to solve this.

I show below the output of some commands:

[root@ws-test ~]# df -h
Filesystem Size Used Avail Use% Mounted on
/dev/sda1 76G 55G 18G 76% /
tmpfs 3.9G 0 3.9G 0% /dev/shm
/dev/sda3 56G 34G 20G 64% /hdd-1
[root@ws-test ~]# fdisk -l

Disk /dev/sda: 160.0 GB, 160041885696 bytes
255 heads, 63 sectors/track, 19457 cylinders
Units = cylinders of 16065 * 512 = 8225280 bytes

Device Boot Start End Blocks Id System
/dev/sda1 * 1 10199 81923436 83 Linux
/dev/sda2 10200 12145 15631245 82 Linux swap / Solaris
/dev/sda3 12146 19441 58605120 83 Linux
[root@ws-test ~]#




Thanks & Regards

Adarsh Sharma

if you think you have an issue with fstab, why have you not shown us what's in the file?
