Thread: No swap?
January 30th, 2008, 10:21 AM #1
So, yesterday, I tried running a Windows Based game that had ran fine earlier, but didn't now. Using wine, it said that there was no swap space. I checked under Ubuntu's system monitor, and I didn't see any swap, either. So, using GParted, I allocated some free space to the swap, but it still doesn't show up?
My question is, where is the swap space? Does it not show up until it gets used?
I'm using Ubuntu 7.10, and have a 1 GB of RAM.

Well, I guess I figured out the game problem, after I installed the patch, the old Armada link was still valid, and since there was the patch installed, it conflicted with itself.
Anyways, I still don't have a swap, I now have 2 GB's of RAM. So, perhaps I need to set a mount point: is it /swap?
Also, if I want to add a new parition for data, what mount point COULD I give it? Something like /home2?

Curious, what game is it?I'm PL, I've come to suck all the intelligence out of this thread.

Not to mention the game doesn't eat up Hard Drive space.
If you do have that game, make sure you get the 1.1 patch.
Anyways, does anybody have a clue about my problem?
Edit- Here's the site to wine.
AppDB is the place to check for compatibility.

You can create either a swap file or partition. Your choice. When created, you need to set and activate it. I suggest using mkswap and swapon, then add a line to /etc/fstab for automatic boot time activation of swap space.
Here is a quick guide:
