Hi folks,

i'm trying to set up a swap space in the Z's internal flash. swapon gives an error saing that there is an unknown option... what could this mean if i do - 'swapon ./swapfile' (ofcourse ater dd & mkswap)?

any suggestions?

Regards,
DnK

You cannot create a swap space on the Zaurus itself due to the unusual filing system it uses. You can only create a swap file on an EXT2 / FAT16 formatted SD or CF card.

Maybe it's somehow possible to use fdisk on internal flash to make a swap partition?
