[Solved] I: The initramfs will attempt to resume from /dev/sda5

#1 Postby outlaw » Fri Jan 12, 2018 8:13 am

Not sure if this is a problem but I don't recall ever seeing these messages before while updating.

Yesterday (2018/Jan/11) I was informed that updates were available for my MX-17 system.

Unpacking mx-goodies (0.2.4) over (0.2.3) ...
Setting up intel-microcode (3.20171215.1~mx17+1) ...
update-initramfs: deferring update (trigger activated)
intel-microcode: microcode will be updated at next boot
Processing triggers for mime-support (3.60) ...
Processing triggers for desktop-file-utils (0.23-1) ...
Setting up mx-goodies (0.2.4) ...
Processing triggers for initramfs-tools (0.130) ...
update-initramfs: Generating /boot/initrd.img-4.13.0-1-amd64

I: The initramfs will attempt to resume from /dev/sda5
I: (UUID=2918e61a-4822-4da4-8028-19469c532387)
I: Set the RESUME variable to override this.

Those last 3 lines make we wonder what was going on with the update process.

/sda5 is my swap partition ... the system has 8 gig of memory
I usually close all open programs before updating my system. (Available RAM should not have been a "problem".)

Additional info:

MX-16 is installed to /dev/sda4
MX-17 is installed to /dev/sda11

Thanks in advance for your thoughts.

Tom
