swap on hurd - conclusion

Yes, I have such big swap. Sometimes even it's not enough :-).

So, if I have swap on /dev/hda1 I should make a new device hd0s0 in /dev.
Next I should add a line to etc/fstab on the same way like in linux fstab
but with different naming convention of the partition (should be hd0s0).
Is it correct?

Woops, sorry about that... I was posting without thinking ;-) . No, it uses
partition names of course, so copy/paste from Linux would NOT be a good
idea. My bad

Note that you need to have run ./MAKEDEV <swap_partition> in /dev for it to
