SubjectRe: Newby help. Tons and tons of Oops
I just noticed these errors in my log as well. Something is weird with my 
swapping I think. If I get Oops that say "Unable to handle kernel paging
request at virtual address ff7f1014" would that not be swap since it is
virtual?
The errors that make me think it may be with my swapper are as follows.

Nov 12 21:12:51 phlegmish kernel: swap_free: Trying to free nonexistent
swap-page
Nov 12 21:12:51 phlegmish kernel: swap_free: Trying to free nonexistent
swap-page
Nov 14 02:57:28 phlegmish rc.sysinit: Enabling swap space: succeeded
Nov 14 03:01:51 phlegmish kernel: swap_free: offset exceeds max
Nov 14 03:01:51 phlegmish kernel: swap_free: offset exceeds max
Nov 14 03:17:37 phlegmish kernel: swap_free: Trying to free nonexistent
swap-page
Nov 14 03:17:37 phlegmish kernel: swap_free: Trying to free nonexistent
swap-page


And so on......
I tried deleting my swap partiton and recreating it but that made no
difference. Any ideas or things to try?

Thanks for the help so far
Dave
