Both Linux and MS-Windows can swap to a file. I never use the two at the
same time, and there is no reason to that require the contents of a swap
file is preserved between sessions. Can I somehow let Linux and Windoze
share swap space?
I have my DOS partition mounted as /dosc, so I tried to do
mkswap -c /dosc/386spart.par 15360
but swapon barfed. I suppose a swap file has to be located on an ext2
filesystem, and not on an msdos filesystem. Does anyone know if it's
possible to share swap space, or do I just have to live with two spaw areas
on my disk, where only one is ever used?
Thanks for any answers. Email preferred, but I'll also look here. I'll
summarize any useful answers.
