Thanks for the information, it has been interesting but is it not possible
to start on the current kernel and do swapoff and then change the swap
partition and then swapon again? Or comment it out in fstab and then reboot?
Anyway, I have resized a swap partition some years ago that way.
So, it may be safer to boot from a rescue CD and work from that
environment, than to try to use swapoff on a single swap space used by
the currently running kernel. And, if you're going to edit fstab and
reboot anyway, why not just do it from the CD and avoid the fstab edit

So, I'm sending this to the list, with a CC to you as a courtesy.
