    SubjectRe: Swap space priorities
    >man swapon

    Well, I said in my post "I set my /etc/fstab as such to set both my swap
    partitions to have equal priority when 'swapon -a' runs at boot >>>(per the
    swapon man page)<<<, and thus have the system swap equally to both
    partitions. " So yes, I've read it very thoroughly. I'm asking because
    what the man page says to do isn't doing what it says it should or I'm
    reading it wrong. Maybe our swapon man pages are different, my swapon(8)
    and swapon(2) being from mount-2.5p. My swapon(8) man page says to set up
    fstab as such (other partitions ommited).

    /dev/hda2 swap swap sw,pri=-1
    /dev/hdc1 swap swap sw,pri=-1

    And I still get this on boot.

    Adding Swap: 66020k swap-space (priority -1)
    Adding Swap: 65988k swap-space (priority -2)

    I'm asking if something changed in 2.1.x from 2.0.x that might not be in
    the swapon man pages.
