Typical I just upgraded my kernel and used "gcc (GCC) 3.2.3 (Debian)"
The result is actually running now what problems could I expect ??
The original reason for upgrading was that I noticed that the old
version I was running could not use swapfiles but that problem still
Assuming pages of size 8192 (not 4096)
Setting up swapspace version 1, size = 8200 kB
# swapon .swapfile
swapon: .swapfile: Invalid argument
In syslog I get this
Swap area shorter than signature indicates
