I am asking for help on Sharing Swap-Space b/w Linux & MS-Windows.
I'm running HP Vectra 486/66U, the MSDOS version is 6.20. My hard disk
partition is as follows:
Partition Status Type Volume Label Mbytes System Usage
C: 1 A Pri DOS MS-DOS_6 200 FAT16
2 Non-DOS(Linux) 191
3 EXT DOS 15
(supposed to be the swap space)
Logical DOS Drive info:
Drv Volume Label Mbytes System Usage
D: SWAP SPACE 15 FAT12 100%
I am using SCSI hard disk, which means I have done:
"ln -s /dev/sda2 /dev/winswap".
(/dev/sda1 --> DOS partition; /dev/sda3 --> Linux native)
The problem is that I can not get Linux recognize the D drive, I mean,
I can not mount /etc/winswap with msdos type (or any other types), nor
can I run msinfo with "msinfo /dev/winswap"
(the result is: "Floating point exception").
Did I do something wrong? Any hints would be really appreciated.
