#6517 closed enhancement (fixed)

Hotplug mounts filesystems but does not turn on swap

Reported by: W. Michael Petullo <mike@…> Owned by: developers
Priority: normal Milestone: Barrier Breaker 14.07
Component: packages Version: Trunk
Keywords: hotplug Cc:


I have a USB disk with swap and filesystem partitions. Yes, a removable swap space may be crazy, but it's all I have to work with. When this disk is connected to my device, the device mounts the filesystem at /mnt/sda2. However, the device does not turn on the swap space. I'd like to see /etc/hotplug.d/block/10-mount do something like (note the addition of swapon):

# Copyright (C) 2009

blkdev=dirname $DEVPATH
if [ basename $blkdev != "block" ]; then

device=basename $DEVPATH
case "$ACTION" in


swapon /dev/$device
( mkdir -p /mnt/$device \

&& mount /dev/$device /mnt/$device )



umount /dev/$device

Note that there should be a double pipe (or) between the swapon and mkdir. This was lost in translation when I submitted this bug.
