It looks like swapping isnt enabled by default in the kernel?

When i do swapon, it responds function not implemented :-/

# id

uid=0(root) gid=0(root) groups=1003(graphics),1004(input),1007(log),1011(adb),30

# swapon /sdcard/swapfile.swp

swapon /sdcard/swapfile.swp

swapon: /sdcard/swapfile.swp: Function not implemented

# ls -l /sdcard

Hmmm, that sucks!

You've installed busybox to get swapon?

Yep. Swapper was failing, so i uninstalled it and tried to turn the swap on manually.

I know that in linux u need to turn on swap support in .config before you compile otherwise you get this message. I wonder if they did it on purpose to make the kernel smaller.
