Ok uelsk8s here it is:
Quote
vector://etc
root:# free
             total       used       free     shared    buffers     cached
Mem:        965184     326364     638820          0      19116     197276
-/+ buffers/cache:     109972     855212
Swap:            0          0          0
 
So it looks like the three  0's tell us swap isn't working

ooops, I was too quick with the 'post button

uelsk8s I think you are probably correct about the swap not being formatted.  Now how do I do that?

Well, no swap partition is in there. Do you have one set aside?

its up at the top hanu

Reb you format a swap by issuing "mkswap /dev/sda2"
then type "swapon -a" to start it
after that it should show in free

Ok uelsk8s

I will follow your proceedure, but just as your post came up, I was going to ask a question:

In VASM I found I could format sda2, but it asked which to use: Reiserfs, ext3,ext2 or xfs.

I would like the answer to this for future reference.  Wink

when mounting partitions with vasm, it finds a unformatted partition, it asks if you want to format it, and offers different filesystems that you can use.
Reiserfs, ext3,ext2 or xfs are linux filesytems that vasm knows how to format with.
Reiserfs is the best Smiley ( of course this is just my Opinion)
