hello.

i'm using colinux 0.60 with debian image. i downloaded
the .gz swap file and setup the swap partition in the
config.xml all properly. when i activate the swap i get
the swap space available but linux doesn't use it. i get
128Mb of swap available but zero bytes used. what's
wrong with this?

in /etc/fstab:
/dev/cobd1 swap swap defaults 0 0
and in the cmd line:
# mkswap /dev/cobd1
# swapon -a

anybody help me?

    Can you post the out put of the free command?

    Change your fstab entry to:
    dev/cobd1 swap swap defaults 1 1

    This is a problem in 0.6.0, update to 0.6.2 and this should
    no longer be an issue.
