10.4: Move swap files to another drive
Authored by: oink on Feb 13, '06 10:03:05AM

MY BAD! I just found two instances of:
if [ -f /etc/rc.swapfile ]; then . /etc/rc.swapfile; fi # inserted locally

in my hand edited rc file.

My log contains about 6 similar instances of these lines corresonponding to 6 reboots:

/sbin/mount -vt hfs /dev/disk0s7 /Volumes/swap
/dev/disk0s7 on /Volumes/swap (local)
Using /dev/disk0s7 for swapfile

Unable to mount swap volume swap; using default configuration

I was overwhelmed by the error and never noticed the first part of the log which successfully created and used the swapfile on my swap partition.

Thank you again. And sorry for my unnecessary alarm.
