I thought I had followed the Colinux install instructions correctly, but when I boot colinux with the Fedora RC1 core I noticed I was getting "Swap-space signature" error. I double checked the colinux config file and I seemed to have set everything correctly.
To "fix" the problem, I logged in as root and ran:
/dev/codb76 corresponding to the device I had configured for the swap space in the colinux config file.
fdisk reported that it had fixed a thing or two but hadn't written changes. Entering a "w" at the Fdisk promopt worte the changes.
I than ran:
I then shut down the system with
and when I brought it back up again the problem was gone.
My knowledge of Linux is limited, so my question is, did I do the right thing?
A much better description of what to do (which doesn't include as many typos as my late night effort above), can be found at:
I try to run fedora core with 62, but I got the same swap-signture problem, I cant even use fdisk with that partition.
So, I try to use a Debian swap partition (that one wich we must download to make debian work with colinux) and now everything is fine. Maybe the swap file which comes with colinux-fedora-core package have a little problem.
