Forgot Swap on lvm install on Slackware 13.1


Hello,

Did a fresh install of 13.1 using lvm for the first time. I created swap in the logical volume but forgot to add it when I ran through the install. Do I need to just add an entry to my fstab and then swapon -va? Thanks in advance for any help.

Here's my fstab entry for swap in case you need it
Code:
/dev/myvg/swap   swap             swap        defaults         0   0
