10.3: Move swap to another partition in Panther
Authored by: milhouse on Nov 14, '03 08:02:44PM

Xupport can successfully move swap files in Panther. I moved mine and using "ps -auxww | grep dynamic_pager" in the terminal reveals the active swap file on the new swap partition .

Force Reboot Breaks Xupport
Authored by: EatingPie on Nov 18, '03 07:23:52PM

The current version of Xupport (beta5?) MAY NOT WORK if you force reboot. I contacted the author about this but received no response.

The method he is using is for Jaguar, and his Panther fix is to simply sleep 5 seconds after calling autodiskmount. Problem one is that this slows your reboot process. Problem two is that 5 seconds is arbitrary and simply may not work: if your Swap is larger than a certain size, autodiskmount will take longer than 5 seconds to fsck the partition... And thus it won't mount, and your screwed... FOREVER. (Well, until you fix it yourself.)

YMMV indeed!
