When creating a new swap partition in Fedora 29 to enlarge it I removed the old one using GParted and removed their respective entries in
/etc/fstab. I created new entries for the new swap partitions which work as intended.
However, the system still tries to mount the old partition at startup even though it is not in /etc/fstab - until it times out eventually.
The service also doesn't exist for any entry of
. I also have tried to run
systemctl reset-failed systemctl daemon-reload
But to no avail. The following is the content of my fstab file:
# /etc/fstab # Created by anaconda on Wed Nov 28 22:29:31 2018 # # Accessible filesystems, by reference, are maintained under '/dev/disk/'. # See man pages fstab(5), findfs(8), mount(8) and/or blkid(8) for more info. # # After editing this file, run 'systemctl daemon-reload' to update systemd # units generated from this file. # UUID=8efbb12d-bd38-420c-a33e-f02205e1a6e9 / ext4 defaults 1 1 UUID=ded23a91-0e22-48f4-b1ec-169f255961b6 /boot ext4 defaults 1 2 UUID=AEA0-2099 /boot/efi vfat umask=0077,shortname=winnt 0 2 UUID=3e9f87b8-0b25-4a2f-aa21-51ea8fc58020 swap swap defaults 0 0 UUID=8743c19d-5d86-4651-a8b6-cf3477da8b13 swap swap defaults 0 0
The following is from
[*** ] A start job is running for dev-disk-by\x2duuid-5121042f\x2de8a6\x2d41ed\x2d981e[ TIME ]
Timed out waiting for device dev-disk-by\x2duuid-5121042f\x2de8a6\x2d41ed\x2d981e\x2de9d224055ea2.device.
EDIT: As per Nasir Riley and sourcejedi's comments I checked my grub file where there was no mention of the partition and i ran
grub2-mkconfig -o /boot/grub2/grub.cfg
It might also be relevant that i run a dual boot windows on this system.
EDIT 2 It seems that the partition was mentioned in /proc but nowhere else. I have since reinstalled my system to fix this issue.
