I’ve a Red Hat 6.2 Linux box in my office. On booting, the system echoes following information.
hda: hda1 hda2 < hda5 > hda3 hda4
Loading default keymap
Activating swap partitions swapon : /dev/hda4 : Invalid argument
swapon : /dev/hda4 : Invalid argument[FAILED]
Setting hostname miniature
Checking root filesystem
/dev/hda3 : clean, 59737 / 235200 files, 230849 / 469893 blocks [OK]
Do these messages say that I have a hard drive/ partition named /dev/hda4? If yes, where is it located? When I give command df –h, I get following info.
Filesystem Size Used Avail Use Mounted on
/dev/hda3 1.8G 873M 842M 71% /
If I do have a hard drive/ partition /dev/hda4, then why don’t I see it listed in the list above? Could it be that such a drive/partition does exist, but remains unused since it is unmounted, for whatever reasons? If unmounted, how can I mount it?
Please help me solve this mystery.
Thanx & regards
