I just spent well over an hour searching for threads here & elsewhere to answer my questions. If I missed a thread, please post it here so I can review the information.
Otherwise: I have CM6, Chevy 1.1GHz (1.2 started crashing left & right) low voltage 7 slot kernel. I used ROM Manager to partition a 64MB swap.
Now, I've been using PCs forever, and know what a partition is. However, I see a swap file on the root of the SD card, as opposed to a complete standalone directory/root (setting up a D: drive to use as a swap-only drive, for example).
I have no idea if the swap is actively being used, have looked for CM6 help, etc. Tried using Swapper 2 but it errors out every time. Tried to tell it to use a swap directory which didn't work either.
So long and short: 1) How do I know if the swapfile presently in the root of the SD card is being used as a swapfile; 2) If it is not working correctly, how do I enable it?
