    It seems udev start job won't start if there is something wrong with swap (at least in Debian.)
    I have run in to this several times now. Something corrupts the swap (probably a bug in Apache web-server or PHP) - system slows down and udev wont start properly on next reboot.
    I have to manually comment out the swap UUID from fstab in recovery mode - reboot and create a new swap - then do swapon to use that until I have fixed the old one.

    Any idea what is going on?
    Why does the swap get corrupted every couple of months?
    Why can't udev handle swap corruption?

    If you are a noob this is basically a deal-braker.
