hda1 boot primary WIN95 FAT32 1159.77
hda2 primary linux swap 90.48
hda3 primary linux ext2 41.13
hda4 primary linux exte2 3085.13
mkswap /dev/hda2 :
Setting up swap version1, size=90472448 bytes
swapon -s :
filename type size used priority
/dev/hda2 partition 88348 59388 -1
swapon -a :
swapon : /dec/hda2 : Device or resource busy
swapoff -a :
VM: do_try_to_free_pages failed for kswapd
VM: do_try_to_free_pages failed for swapoff
swapoff : /dev/hda2 : Cannot allocate memory
Apparently the swap partition is used (59388) but
swapon and swapoff cannot use it.
I don't find kswapd in my system.
I run dumpe2fs and I get : file system not clean.
My system seemed not completly broken but if there is
not solution never mind.
I thank you for your help.
