So, systemd is being used by my system now, and things seem to be working pretty well, but I keep seeing the following lines when I look at the journalctl output:

Code:
Apr 21 12:36:26 localhost systemd[1]: Job dev-SWAP.device/start timed out.
Apr 21 12:36:26 localhost systemd[1]: Timed out waiting for device dev-SWAP.devi
Apr 21 12:36:26 localhost systemd[1]: Dependency failed for /dev/SWAP.
Apr 21 12:36:26 localhost systemd[1]: Dependency failed for Swap.


it's really strange, because looking at parted shows:

Code:
silverbolt ~ # parted /dev/sda
GNU Parted 3.1
Using /dev/sda
Welcome to GNU Parted! Type 'help' to view a list of commands.
(parted) print
Model: ATA ST3250310AS (scsi)
Disk /dev/sda: 250GB
Sector size (logical/physical): 512B/512B
Partition Table: gpt
Disk Flags:

Number  Start   End     Size    File system     Name    Flags
 1      1049kB  3146kB  2097kB                  grub    bios_grub
 2      3146kB  137MB   134MB   ext2            boot
 3      137MB   674MB   537MB   linux-swap(v1)  swap
 4      674MB   250GB   249GB   ext4            rootfs

(parted)


and my /etc/fstab file looks like:

Code:
silverbolt ~ # cat /etc/fstab
# /etc/fstab: static file system information.
#
# noatime turns off atimes for increased performance (atimes normally aren't
# needed); notail increases performance of ReiserFS (at the expense of storage
# efficiency).  It's safe to drop the noatime options if you want and to
# switch between notail / tail freely.
#
# The root filesystem should have a pass number of either 0 or 1.
# All other filesystems should have a pass number of 0 or greater than 1.
#
# See the manpage fstab(5) for more information.
#

# <fs>                  <mountpoint>    <type>          <opts>          <dump/pass>

# NOTE: If your BOOT partition is ReiserFS, add the notail option to opts.
/dev/sda2               /boot           ext2            noauto,noatime  1 2
/dev/sda4               /               ext4            noatime         0 1
/dev/sda3               none            swap            sw              0 0


Do I need to re-label the /dev/sda3 partition to be something other than linux-swap(v1) ?

Did you format /dev/sda3 as swap?
It's done like this:
Code:

mkswap /dev/sda3

well, I thought I did, but after re-running the mkswap command, it cleared the issue.

(it also didn't help that I was mis-reading the journalctl output. I thought that journalctl was cleared after each reboot like dmesg. I realized later that, no I was seeing the error from way early this morning. :-} Once I got that straight, I found the relevant lines from the most recent reboot and did not see the error any more).

Marking this as solved, too... due to PEBKAC. *sigh* it's a Monday, you know.
