Yeah, I had considered that.|
I owe Marc Singer a few bootloader experiments (I haven't forgotten,
just been a bit busy and not wanting to take it off line)
When that's complete I'll decide it's fate, i.e. do I want to sell it
or have I a role for another little server!

I have two disks attached to my NSLU2. The main disk in port 1 usually gets /dev/sda so the root partion would be /dev/sda5 When I boot with just 1 disk attached i get the swap partion like I should. When the second disk is attached it seems like I dont get the swap partion. I think the main disk gets mounted sometimes as /dev/sdb. I have the two main disk partions being mounted by UUID but I dont seem to have a UUID that I can find for the swap.I think your right. So what's the UUID of a swap partition? Good question. However, I think there was another thread (something to do with RAID) which also had this kind of problem. You could search the list for something like 'UUID'. Maybe someone knows the correct solution by heart?

Im running out of ram and my system really starts to crawl and I never see anything used as far as swap using the top command.Just do `swapon -s`. That will tell you if you use a swap partition and how much of it is used. David-- Have pets? Get the help you need from the Pet Advice Network.
