Swap file on Samsung Galaxy

Recommended Posts

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

ls -l /sdcard

drwxrwxrwx system system 2009-08-10 20:53 sd

----rw-rw- system system 33554432 2009-08-10 20:57 swapfile.swp

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.
