Maybe someone here can explain why my swap space is not activating, mind you it took me a couple weeks to notice.. anyway, i installed slack 9.1 a couple weeks ago and i made a 500mb swap space partition, its on /dev/hda3 and i just took it for granted that it was being used.. i began to run out of space on one of my partitions so i checked why using gnomes system monitor.. (im a gnome lover
) and i noticed that there was no swap space.. i had never even noticed it before... so i issued the command swapon /dev/hda3 and low and behold it appears.. now i checked the fstab file and it aint listed in there that is the only place i can think it should be.. anyway fstab below.. what do i do to get it activating at boot time? i know it might be useless everynow and then but well i want it on since ive partitioned for it..
Sound :- ive got an intel centrino laptop (sony z1sp to be precise) and i was looking on the web for install quirkies etc and i stumbled on 2 webpages with the info on howto install on it so naturally i followed it.. sound does work when im using things like xmms or xine.. but i cant get esd to run when gnome starts and it returns with audio_alsa: no cards found! listed below is my modules.conf file. well i want to get esd to work so i can have gnome making sounds and get gaim to make sounds so i know when ive got a message cause i dunno about u lot but a little asterix next to their name is not something that catches my eye..
Any help on either would be great
