NEED MORE Swap space !!

NEED MORE Swap space !!

Post by Rick Dearm » Thu, 01 Feb 1996 04:00:00

When I installed Linux, I made the mistake of only putting aside 4
megs on /dev/hda2 for swap space. Is there any utilitys that would
allow me to increase the size of this partion? Or failing that can I
create a file or directory to use as a swap???

Thanks in advance.


1. plenty of swap space, but keep receiving error "swap space limit exceeded"

Syslog reports
  unix: WARNING: /tmp: File system full, swap space limit exceeded


  Filesystem            kbytes    used   avail capacity  Mounted on
  swap                 2423720   48480 2375240     3%    /tmp

The host:
  SunOS <hostname> 5.7 Generic_106541-16 sun4u sparc SUNW,Ultra-60

I ran vmstat 1 for some time and watched for available swap space to
go to zero. But the lowest it would go is 75kB.

When analyzing this problem, I ran into the following error twice, but
for different commands:
  Can't run command <command>
  fork(2) failed; no more memory

What's going on?
