Swap Partition on Fedora 35

I have needed to create a new SWAP partition on a seperate Disk.
All created and created as linux-swap and lsblk recognises it as a SWAP
But do I need to load this into fstab file to load it and get the system to use it ?
Sorry if I am being Stupid…
Thanks in advance…

Foremost, there are no stupid questions.

Secondly, you need to enable the swap either using a fstab entry like:

/newswap    swap    swap   defaults 0 0

Or with the swapon command.

For the correct use, I suggest the ArchWiki article.

Hope this was helpful. :smile:
