With a root text editor go to /boot/grub/menu.lst. First make a backup copy of it and then see if in any of the boot stanzas in there have a line looking like:
If they do then delete them and save the file (don't delete anything else or you will compound the problem not fix it).
The reason this works for me is that I never use hibernate or suspend, if you want to do so then this is probably not a good idea. In that case you might like to see if it is the correct UUID so you would run
- Code: Select all
sudo vol_id /dev/sda7
Assuming sda7 was your swap partition.
If it doesn't match the one in menu.lst then change it.
Thank you Viking. I have done as you advised, but there is no line anywhere in menu.lst that contains resume=UUID=1bf61ac4-43b6xxxxxx
Here is what I got with volume ID and a copy of my menu.lst.
alex-desktop ~ # cp /boot/grub/menu.lst /boot/grub/menu.lst.backup
alex-desktop ~ # gedit /boot/grub/menu.lst
alex-desktop ~ # vol_id /dev/sda7

The uuid file shown in vol_id is not anywhere in menu.lst.
Where do I put it?
