Hibernate stopped working properly after accidental swap formatting


I often install distros for the purpose of learning, and managed to format my swap partition. After returning to my main os (Mint 11 katya) and editing the fstab , the swap seemed to be working properly. When I attempt to hibernate however, it seems that nothing is saved to the swap, and the process simply shuts of the laptop. Any ideas?

Run fdisk -l and swapon -s as root and let us know their output.

I don't use UUID for precisely this reason. Depending on what suspend software you use, check the config (say /etc/uswsusp.conf).
Initram as well I guess with Mint.

as far as I know I'm using the default, which I thought was PM-utils
