swapon: /dev/sda6: not enough memory

hello guys .

i have a problem when trying to activate a swap partition
the kernel in 2.4 , has 140 mb ram free from 4 gb ,

whem i`m trying to run swapon /dev/sda6 - not enough memory error

i tried to add in /etc/fstab , swapoff all and then swapon all ..but same error

the server is running some databeses and is in production restart possible
anyone knows what is with this error and how i resolve to incrsease safetly the swap?
i don`t think it`s from memory

oh...system has a swap of 7 mb in /dev/sda5 , and i`m trying to put another swap or to increase this one
