Suse 9.2 fails to resume from disk

The saga of getting my Suse 9.2 box to behave as well as my Suse 9.1 box pre upgrade continues.

Slight problem with suspend to disk. Well, rather, the resume from disk just wasn't working.

After some digging I found that the 'resume=/dev/hdc5' entry was missing from '/boot/grub/menu.lst.'

I think there may also have been a problem with my swap partition so i did the following to be safe:
  • Checked '/etc/fstab' to make sure the swap partition was listed (it was)
  • Used the 'swapoff' command to disable swap (don't think it was being used but just to be safe)
  • 'mkswap /dev/hdc5'
  • Used 'swapon -a -v' to activate swap
Boot and general performances seems better/quicker so I suspect it was a problem.
