Since i never used a swapfile it tried to create and use one, but it seems 
that it fails, am I doing something wrong ? 
Or is there some other problem ?

Kafka:~# dd if=/dev/zero of=/swapfile bs=1024 count=65536
65536+0 records in
65536+0 records out
67108864 bytes transferred in 3.052310 seconds (21986254 bytes/sec)
Kafka:~# mkswap /swapfile
Assuming pages of size 8192 (not 4096)
Setting up swapspace version 1, size = 67166 kB
Kafka:~# swapon /swapfile
swapon: /swapfile: Invalid argument
