initial swap area

Post by Michael Kenn » Fri, 12 Jun 1992 12:23:06

Hi Folks,

Just got Linux today and tried the boot image on my home PC.  Doesn't
seem to work...I get an "Out of swap space" error during the boot.
Where is Linux looking for swap?  In RAM?  If so, what's the minimum
amount needed at boot time?

Please respond by email.

1. sharing swap area between Linux and Win3.1 - possible?

Is it possible, on a system with multiple primary bootable partitions,
to set up Linux and Win3.1x so that they share the same swap file
area, ie the area allotted to 386SPART.PAR?
