I bet I am doing something really silly, but having problems in getting the swap activated.I have followed the instructions to the letter, except I have an Ubuntu 64 bit server here so used gparted on that instead of using the bootdisc.Basically Free still returns 0. Here is the respond to free as piped to my SD Card: total used free shared buffers Mem: 101472 98936 2536 0 4952 Swap: 0 0 0Total: 101472 98936 2536Here is the return of df:Filesystem 1K-blocks Used Available Use% Mounted on/dev/root 150528 71676 78852 48% /tmpfs 50736 16 50720 0% /devtmpfs 4096 0 4096 0% /sqlite_stmt_journals/dev/block/mtdblock8 153600 37416 116184 24% /data/dev/block/mtdblock9 102400 4616 97784 5% /cache/dev/block/mtdblock11 1678336 9664 1668672 1% /UserSpace/dev/block/loop0 1507540 16 1507524 0% /LocalDisk/dev/block//vold/179:1 3751832 52780 3699052 1% /sdcardI think I am going to format the card again using the exact method as highlighted by Ecotox in his wiki...if anything else this might just turn out to be a warning not to use 64 bit ubuntu to gparted.

OK used the same method and still no swap.... I have tried a different SD card and again no joy. Looks like I will have too forget about having swap space for the moment. As a thought, the line with /dev/block/mtdblock9 102400 4616 97784 5% /cache in it could be the swap location as the size kind of tallys with the 100mb I have allocated in gparted.

Odd question:Is your swap partition the first or second partition on the card?I made the mistake of putting it as the first partition once, caused issues.So I repartitioned the card with the swap at the end...the issues went away.Also, I run Ubuntu 10 so I used Disk Utility which I found as a nice replacement for gparted.
