Re: memory_object_data_request failed

Thanks for the advice. I had already created a swap partition on hd1s1
but unfortunately I can't do anything (like swapon or cd /dev!) without
this memory problem. Is there anything like the minix install for lomem
on linux? That would allow me to activate the swap before booting the
mach kernel.
