I didn't use a swap partition during installation so now that my ubuntu is installed, I used GParted Partition Editor to create an unallocated partition which I formatted as linux-swap. It didn't automatically mount so I right clicked it and selected swapon. Now, whenever I boot the laptop, the partition is not mounted automatically. Swapon still works but if the partition isn't mounted at boot, its as good as useless.
I saw some answers which said to edit some file named Fstab, but I'm not sure about what changes to make… Please help me by giving step-by-step instructions as I'm a TOTAL noob and don't know U of Ubuntu, I'm having a lot of problems… please help me! :'( 🙁
Here's what my fstab file contains-
# /etc/fstab: static file system information. # # Use 'blkid' to print the universally unique identifier for a # device; this may be used with UUID= as a more robust way to name devices # that works even if disks are added and removed. See fstab(5). # # <file system> <mount point> <type> <options> <dump> <pass> # / was on /dev/sda2 during installation UUID=33a0fc77-06b0-406c-95fd-15bf7033b619 / ext4 errors=remount-ro 0 1 # a swapfile is not a swap partition, no line here # use dphys-swapfile swap[on|off] for that
