So results that swap doesn't get mounted (wow I feel smart).
But here'e the interesting part, after the power outage I
had to do a fsck on /dev/rdsk/c0t0d0s0 and I'll put money on
it that the system recovered an old copy of the /etc/vfstab:
#device device mount FS
fsck mount mount
#to mount to fsck point type
pass at boot options
#/dev/dsk/c1d0s2 /dev/rdsk/c1d0s2 /usr ufs
1 yes -
fd - /dev/fd fd - no -
/proc - /proc proc - no -
/dev/dsk/c0t0d0s1 - - swap -
/dev/dsk/c0t0d0s0 /dev/rdsk/c0t0d0s0 /
ufs 1 no -
swap - /tmp tmpfs - yes -
So note the strategically placed # in front of the
/dev/dsk/c1d0s2 line, solved the problem...weird.
Well everything works now and I'm just a bit savvier about
