-Before moving on to the next +Before moving on to resizing the filesystem, you can take a moment to fix your swap space:
  
     $ sudo mkswap /dev/sda5     $ sudo mkswap /dev/sda5
Line 186: Line 186:
     no label, UUID=0880b61e-33ed-43ca-8d8c-b6911e57a84d     no label, UUID=0880b61e-33ed-43ca-8d8c-b6911e57a84d
          
 +Now copy the ''UUID=0880b61e...'' line, and open ''/etc/fstab'' in a text editor:
 +
 +    $ sudo nano /etc/fstab
 +
 +Find the line that specifies ''swap'' in the ''<type>'' column. Delete the first word in that line, up to the first space (it will either say ''/dev/sda5'' or ''UUID=...''). Replace that word with the ''UUID=...'' that you got from ''mkswap'', then save the file. Now your system is configured to use the new swap space when you boot up.
