I have an IDE drive that I took from another Linux Red Hat server.
fdisk -l shows this:
Device Boot Start End Blocks Id System
/dev/sdc1 * 1 13 104391 83 Linux
/dev/sdc2 14 143 1044225 82 Linux swap
when I try to mount it, I get this error
/dev/sdc2 looks like swapspace - not mounted
mount: you must specify the filesystem type
the fstab entry is this:
/dev/sdc2 /mnt/oldlos auto defaults 0 0
for some reason linux is seeing it as a swap partition. why do you think it's this way?
