Guix is not possible to start swap device/dev/sda2. I noticed this:
# guix system reconfigure /etc/config.scm...guix system: error: exception caught while executing 'start' on service 'swap-/dev/sda2':In procedure swapon: "/dev/sda2": Invalid argument...
# cat /etc/config.scm...(operating-system (host-name "antelope") (timezone "Europe/Moscow") (locale "en_US.utf8")  (bootloader (bootloader-configuration                (bootloader grub-bootloader)                (target "/dev/sda")))  (file-systems (cons (file-system                        (device "/dev/sda1") (mount-point "/") (type "ext4"))                      %base-file-systems))  (swap-devices '("/dev/sda2"))

I've read manual and I do not know what is wrong:https://git.savannah.gnu.org/cgit/guix.git/tree/doc/guix.texi?id=1c6c0ad067b558fcbebd87e8cb51d342d808163e#n6878 https://git.savannah.gnu.org/cgit/guix.git/tree/doc/guix.texi?id=1c6c0ad067b558fcbebd87e8cb51d342d808163e#n6878

Swap really did not worked ever in my Guix installation. Let me know what ought to be done?

Just to be sure, could you run "mkswap /dev/sda2"?

Hi,

According to swapon(2), there are 3 conditions that can lead to thiserror:
EINVAL The file path exists, but refers neither to a regular file nor to a block device;
EINVAL (swapon()) The indicated path does not contain a valid swap signature or resides on an in-memory filesystem such as tmpfs(5).
EINVAL (since Linux 3.4) (swapon()) An invalid flag value was specified in flags.
Did you run “mkswap /dev/sda2” beforehand?
Thanks,Ludo’.
