Kernel 2.4 and Swap (solved)

FYI, I posted a question on kernel 2.4 causing swapon to segfault.

Well, I solved the problem, and as a number of people related having seen
the problem (but no solution) I thought you might be interested.

In short, this is caused by an outdated version of the mount package (which
contains swapon), such as can be found in Debian Potato.

To remove the error, simply get a new version of the mount package (or if
like it potato, you need to re-compile the package, gra the util-linux
source and compile it to get mount/swapon).

While you're at it, updating fileutils is probably a good idea if you had
to update the mount package....
