Swap does not mount in start up


Hi all. I had swap partition for Mageia installation on another physical drive than root and home, and got because it increased system load time. The system in start up too long searches swap in this lactation, so I decide to relocate it on to same drive where are other Mageia partitions. I delete old swap and create new. But this new one does not mount in system start up.
I have only 1Gb of RAM so swap is necessary for me.

Swap doesn't really get mounted, it gets "turned on." But, did you update /etc/fstab with the new swap partition?

How did you create it?
Code:
mkswap -c /dev/sda2
swapon /dev/sda2
in fstab:
Code:
/dev/sda2	swap	swap	default 0 0
Kind regards
