Just installed Fedora 17 from scratch to a clean disk and have a couple of issues.
During boot, the system hangs for ~15-30 secs after the entry Started Recreate Volatile Files and Directories
appears on the console. The system is trying to find a particular uuid:
Timed out waiting for device dev-disk-by\x2duuid-bdb620d8\x2d38d5\x2d4dd3\x2d8ee6\x2d5f4378a6ed58.d evice.
Dependency failed for /dev/disk/by-uuid/bdb620d8-38d5-4dd3-8ee6-5f4378a6ed58.
The problem is that as near as I can tell, this uuid does not exist on my system. I checked /dev/disk/by-uuid and used the command 'blkid /dev/sd<#>' on all disks listed in /dev. Next I checked fstab and found two entries for swap, neither of which corresponds to any disk on my system and one of which corresponds to the uuid that is timing out.
UUID=97fac974-4d65-4471-a01a-41544a6de796 swap swap defaults 0 0
UUID=bdb620d8-38d5-4dd3-8ee6-5f4378a6ed58 swap swap defaults 0 0
I then tried commenting out these two lines and adding the swap with the fstab line:
/dev/sda5 swap swap defaults 0 0
...and although the swap gets added via this entry okay, the system stills hangs at boot with the same message. I also rebuilt the initrd using dracut as part of the nvidia driver install, thinking this would solve the problem, but again it failed.
Where else might the reference to this uuid be hiding? Anywhere else I should look, andthing else I can try.
