I recently did a full install of RH6.0 after removing RH5.2 (wanted to
try a different disk arrangement). After installing during the boot
sequence I received two error messages from swapon - that the
permissions for /dev/hdb10 were insecure and that /dev/hdb10 did not
At first I thought that the two messages were linked, now I do not think
so. I took swapon's suggestion and changed the permissions of
/deb/hdb10 to 0600 and that fixed the insecure permissions problem. But
swapon still believes that /dev/hdb10 does not exist. I am certain
that it does - I created it during install, and fdisk lists it just
fine. I have tried manually running (as root) swapon both as:
in my /etc/fstab it has the line:
/dev/hdb10 none swap exec,dev,suid,rw 0 0
From what I understand about the fstab file, this looks right.
I am at a lose to see why swapon does not believe /dev/hdb10 exists.
