OK, installed swapd....tried using apt-get again to install some packages...
Unfortunately, I got the Qtopia 'Memory Status' window popping up again....
This time it said,
"Memory is very low.
Unfortunately, due the hard drive light flickering with so much activity going on, it's hard to do that...so disconnected AC cord and removed battery....rebooted.
FWIW, I installed X/Qt/Debian this time per Meanie's webpage.
I installed Debian to hdd3 using a loopback instead of SD card as he described.
I created a loopback filesystem on /hdd3 with 1024MB. He suggested either 256MB or 512MB if you wanted to install OpenOffice. So I thought what the heck, make it 1024...
Was that a mistake to make it so big?
Also, I did setup a 128MB swapfile per his instructions on /hdd3.
So was it a mistake to install swapd?
Or to put the swap directory on the SD card?
Would like to get rid of this low memory problem....

pop in an sd card
make a dir called "swap" on it
