I searched through this forum, but wasn't able to find a solution, I hope someone can give me some answers. Here it is :
I am using a linux live CD, slax (damn, I can't put the URL for the moment... google it !) , which is really great, and I would like to use some swap with it. Problem is the only hard drive I have is NTFS, since I'm using it on my professional laptop. I thought I could do it with kernel 2.6.12 since it is capable of writing inside existing NTFS files if it doesn't change their size, but I can't get it working. What I did was :
under linux, create a 1.0gb file on a usb drive :
dd if=/dev/zero of=/mnt/sda1_removable/swapfile.swp count=2000000
under Window$ 2000, copy it on c:/
reboot linux, make it a swapfile :
mkswap -c /mnt/hda1/swapfile.swp
swapon it :
This is where I get every time :
Invalid Argument : /mnt/hda1/swapfile.swp
What did I do wrong ? Or can't I swap on NTFS ?
Thanks in Advance !!!
