which kernels work with swapper? I couldn't get the one thats default with UD to work
I getCode:turning swap off(file) FAIL swapoff: cant stat /sdcard/swapfile.swap': No such file or directory Removing swap file FAIL rm: cant remove '/sdcard/swapfile.swp': No such file or directory

Compcache and swap are 2 totally different things. Compcache is a portion of the system's normal RAM that is compressed in order to increase the overall amount of information that can be cached. This boosts the total amount of RAM available, but the compressed portion will read/write slower.
Swap (controlled by Swapper) is not true RAM: its a portion of your sd card that your system uses as supplementary memory. It is MUCH slower than RAM, and should avoid being used under normal operating circumstances as overtime it will degrade the life of your SD card. In between playing, reset your "swappiness" to 0 in order to disable swap without having to recreate the swap file.
BTW, the way you can test to see if swap is truly enabled even after all the "Fail" messages, is press menu > info in swapper, and see if there is a number assosciated with swap.
You can also check this by opening the android terminal emulator and entering "free" and checking to see if your system currently has any swap space enabled.
1) Double check that your swap is truly enabled. In swapper 2, go Menu>Info and make sure there is a number associated with swap.
2) After you turn on swap on swapper, open up the terminal emulator app and enter the command 'free'. If the total available memory is less than 256mb, it still wont start. This is why I use a 256mb swap PARTITION as opposed to just a swap file.
...And Pinball: each ROM comes with a stock kernel that is usually limited to around 800MHz. If you want higher clock speeds, you need to install a custom kernel with higher clock speeds enabled. I'd recommend either CVPCS or Slayher.
