Debian Configuration :: Firewire_ohci: Swap Not Done Yet?

Sep 4, 2010

I added as an experiment a swapfile , see topic Put an extra line in fstab to activate swapfile during boot.When I reboot a bootmessage is shown : activating lvm and md swap....Result is that bootime is lengthened by 10 seconds....dmesg shows four lines containing " firewire_ohci: swap not done yet "I don't use firewire, should I blacklist modules ?What about " activating lvm " in the bootmessage ? I don't use lvm.Update : just found out that dmesg contains the same lines " firewire_ohci: swap not done yet " when swapfile is not enabled. Without swapfile boottime is normal : grub -> kdm in 17 seconds.

Debian Configuration :: Swap USB WiFi For Broadcom HP Mini 110

Aug 21, 2015

A friend gave me an HP Mini 110 that I can actually use in some situations. I installed Debian 8 with LXDE. It runs well except for the expected lack of driver for the Broadcom 4312 wireless chip. I installed wl using the method shown at [URL] ....

It works fine except that it takes very long to set up WiFi at boot (1 min 30 sec or more every boot--this is a rather frail Atom processor) and the WiFi reception seems poor (65% from an excellent router at 25 feet).

I'm thinking of getting a Panda 300Mbps Wireless N USB Adapter (reportedly using the Ralink RT5372 chipset) and removing the Broadcom driver. I have 2 questions:

1. Could I expect the Panda not to slow my boot time so much? I'm not knowledgeable enough to tell whether there is stable kernel support of this device, although the manufacturer says repeatedly that it works with most Linux distributions.

2. To remove wl is Code: Select allmodprobe -r wl the correct approach?

Debian Configuration :: LVM Volume - Swap Not Working / Activated

Jul 29, 2010

I'm running Debian testing/unstable, with my swap on an lvm volume. When I boot into the system, the swap doesn't become activated, even though there are messages that point to the contrary (for instance: "activating swap file...done"). After it's done booting, I run the command "free" and it shows that there is no space allocated to swap. "swapon -a" doesn't load the swap file either -- I have to do "swapon /dev/mapper/xxx-xxx". The swap appears in fstab, and also in /etc/initramfs-tools/conf.d/resume.

This laptop that I am trying to get Debian 5 working on is occasionally locking up during boot at "Activating Swap..." WTF could cause such a bizarre thing? The swap partition is just empty space. Activating must be nothing more than confirming it exists and mounting it.

Ubuntu Installation :: Why Does 10.10 Have 'Swap Area' Configuration

Oct 12, 2010

I was so excited that finally I can get the newest version of Ubuntu installed on my computer. Yesterday I downloaded the iso file and emptied my F:/ disk, hoping I can install it this morning. Everything was perfect until I met 'swap area'. I thought it was just that the installing program needed some free space during the process. Storage hierarchy, caching, something like that. So I configured my E:/ disk as the 'swap area'.

Bad decision! After everything was done, I rebooted ubuntu, only finding that my E:/ no longer existed!!!! I couldn't believe my eyes, so I rebooted back to Win7. E:/ disk wasn't there any more! Now I have to accept the bitter truth. All my journals, photos, and documents are ruined. My point is that: if something like 'swap area' is not so common sense to everybody, why does it have to be there? And if it will format that disk, why aren't I noticed? Not so long ago, I heard some one claimed that the ubuntu10.10 installing process would be revolutionized, much more user-friendly. Well, this is not what I've expected.

Ubuntu :: Swap Or Swap File On Flash Memory?

Aug 16, 2010

RAM for older machines like I use is fairly cheap these days. But flash memory is just as cheap or cheaper. So I'd like to ask about the feasibility of expanding my system's memory using flash memory. And about whether creating a partition for swap on the flash memory, or whether a swap file on the flash device, is the better way to go.

By flash memory I have in mind mainly USB sticks or what are sometimes called "pen drives." But I do also have CF and SD cards that, with the proper cheap adapter (one of which I already own for adapting CF) could be used to create extra swap space. So, what is the current consensus on the feasibility/advisability of using flash memory for swap? I've read about the limited write cycles of flash being an argument against using it for swap. But recent reading indicates to me that the limited write cycles problem applies mostly to older, smaller-capacity flash memory. Some will come out and say that, for larger-capacity flash memory, the life of the device is likely to exceed the amount of time your current computer will be useful (I think I've seen estimates in the range of 3-4 years life--minimum--for newer, higher-capacity flash memory).

A more persuasive argument I've heard against using flash memory for swap is that access times for these devices can be much slower than SATA, and maybe even IDE, hard drives. That would certainly dictate against using flash memory for swap.

So, how about some input on this issue? Anyone using flash memory for swap? If so, what kind (e.g., usb stick or SD/CF)? Are you using a swap file or a swap partition? How's system performance? Likewise, has anyone had flash-memory-used-as-swap die on them? The consequences would undoubtedly be dire. Also, has anyone measured flash memory access times to confirm or refute claims about slow access times? Are some types of flash memory better/worse than others in terms of access times?

Debian :: Creating A New Swap Partition ?

Jul 3, 2011

Currently my system runs on two disks, sda 30GB and sdc 1GB. sdb is my data disk. I have set the partitions as sda1 /boot, sda2 /(root) and sdc1 /(swap).

Thinking that sdc was udma33 i used the disk for a swap area. Later i found out that it is pio4 and i want to relocate my swap area to sda.

Using GParted Live i am planning to create a swap partition to sda. Will fixing the entry in fstab be enough to correct this or do i need to do something more?

I could also use some advice on which live debian image i can install in sdc, to use for rescuing purposes. The capacity of the disk is 1080MB.

As a side note, the images i find for usd-hdd are direct download. Are there any torrent files for these?

Debian Installation :: Swap Space For 64 Bit Squeeze ?

Oct 31, 2010

I am currently running 32 bit ubuntu in my PC with 2.5 GB RAM, Intel Pentium Dual Core inside. I am coming to debian soon. I will be installing 64 bit squeeze. Now I have 3 GB of swap space. I do satellite image processing. Therefore what is the recommended swap space for me with the kind of work I do. RAM is in very small amount but as of now I have to stay with it.

Also I am interested to know would KDE be an overkill for my machine. Will I run short of memory when I start image processing?

Debian Multimedia :: System Freezes When Using Swap

Sep 17, 2010

As mentioned in the other two posts, my debian freezes when I use swap. Sometimes only the window-borders dissapear. However, this is not endurable for me. The answer "this is normal" is unfortunatly not getting censored. Even linux must be able to take heavy load without crashing.

Details here: [URL]
and here: [URL]

The vlc-problem could be solved by the way: It seems my MESA-installation caused OpenGL to work. As output in vlc, everything runs as it should now.

Debian Installation :: How To Find Out If Swap Partition Is Active

Feb 12, 2015

I recently installed Debian 7.6 64-bit on Dell Vostro 1520 laptop.Using Gparted, create extended partition in the remaining disk space 67.91 GB

Install Debian 7.6 as follows
Code: Select all/dev/sdb5   /        8GB   Ext4   
/dev/sdb6   / home   17GB   Ext4   
/dev/sdb7   swap     5GB

I opened a terminal and ran some commands to show the results below....

Code: Select allroot@DELL-DEBIAN:/home/hugh# cat /proc/swaps
Filename            Type      Size   Used   Priority
/dev/sda7                               partition   4979708   0   -1
root@DELL-DEBIAN:/home/hugh#
Code: Select allroot@DELL-DEBIAN:/home/hugh# cat /etc/fstab
# /etc/fstab: static file system information.

[code]...

I have a couple of questions....

1. Does the data above indicate everything is running as it should?

2. What does this command tell me about swap? "/sbin/swapoff /dev/sda7" I read somewhere it should be run on 64-bit system but not sure what it does.

3. Is the command "cat /proc/swaps" the best way to determine if swap is running ok?

4. Can I share this swap partition with another distro, e.g. Ubuntu or Xubuntu? as I would like to multi-boot for testing purposes.

Debian Installation :: Why Does 8.2 Change UUID Of Swap Drive

Dec 14, 2015

Been doing some installations in a newly upgraded machine where I'm setting up two instances of 8.2 in slightly different configurations.Installing from netinst AMD64 DVD with firmware non-free. First installation goes smooth as then the second changes the UUID of the swap partition, meaning that the first then can't find it. To add insult to injury the second installation doesn't install GRUB in the MBR of the HDD.

Nothing different or special about the installation which is standard graphical with manual allocation of previously set up partitions. I don't touch the swap drive in the partitioner - just point to the correct partitions for / and /home as I want them. This is exactly as I've done before, many times.Setup asks me if I want to install GRUB in MBR and I answer "No" (because it would otherwise load in MBR of sda where I want it on sdb) then point to sdb in the next screen. Again really nothing different to what I've done dozens of times.

Debian :: Reduce Swap Size On Encrypted Drive?

Apr 30, 2016

I installed Debian 8 Jessie with full disk encryption and chose to have everything on the same partition. After install, I notice that my 8GB laptop has a 16GB swap. Is there a way to reduce the swap to 8GB (or maybe 4) whilst not affecting the encryption?

I have a 1TB HDD so space is not an issue but I dislike such waste. The setup used LVM.

Debian Installation :: SSD - Garbage Collector And Swap Partition / File

Feb 27, 2015

After some years using OS X, I'm returning on Debian on my Macbook Pro in single boot.

I've bought a Samsung SSD (850 EVO 500Go) in order to replace the slow built-in HDD.

But I've earned about the need of repartition of writing operation on that kind of drives, and I'm concerned about swap partition.

I need swap (especially for Darktable, browsers and maybe Steam games), but I wonder if the usual swap partition (even with discard mount option) is really recommandable for SSD drives.

Actually, on Debian wiki and others, the usual recommandation is "if you have enough RAM, don't use swap or minimise swapiness to 1", but using of swap file is not mentioned.

Indeed, if I have only one "big" partition on the SSD drive and TRIM activated, the garbage collector (low level) built in chipet's SSD will optimize SSD life, but I don't know how the low level garbage collection works with multiple partition.

So there is my questions :

- Will SSD garbage collection will preserve the disc use even if I have a 2GB swap partition ?
- Will I'd use a swap file instead of swap partition (I don't really need to hibernate) ?

Software :: How To Cancel Swap Mounting At Boot In Debian Initrd

Oct 9, 2010

When I installed Debian stable on a headless machine of mine, I configured a partition with LUKS encryption (intended for swap), but told the installer not to use it. After installation, I configured that encrypted partition as swap and mounted it. I wanted my headless machine to boot all the way without manual intervention, so I can log in via ssh and mount my encrypted partitions.However, since the kernel was updated (and the initrd regenerated), the machine now waits during boot for me to enter the swap encryption password, but no others, only the swap.I have been unable to find in my searchings how the initrd is generated with that setting or how I can change it, preferably permanently so future regenerated initrd's don't try activating my encrypted swap on boot. Does anyone know how to configure a Debian style initrd generator to generate an initrd that will not try to activate swap?

Debian Configuration :: ProFTPd Configuration - Use To Host MySQL Databases And A Few Websites

Nov 18, 2010

I am having no luck configuring ProFTPd on a Debian Lenny production server we use to host our MySQL databases and a few websites. I had originally set it up so I could login and manage our internal sites, but I have the need to allow a few clients in to access their sites that we host. I am trying to root the users in their site directory, which would be "/sites/www.whatever.com/".

It just hit me while typing this. Is it possible to create a user without a shell to prevent login via SSH and set the home folder to /sites/whatever instead of /home/username? That would allow me to continue operating with my current configuration and root them in their site while preventing SSH logins.

Debian Configuration :: Multipath Configuration On 5.0 64 Bit - Doesn't Create The Relative Devices
