Hey, I need to install Linux (not sure what one yet. I think its going to be debian or gentoo) on a pc with 64MB RAM.
Though I have a Drive thats 256MB thats pure SWAP.
I cant activate the swap with swapon /mnt/swap
How can I activate it before/during the installation?

If you have formatted /dev/hdx in SWAP then there is no need to recreate it using mkswap.
Are you specifying correct partition? Check the output of fdisk -l command.
What error swapon command is throwing? Check the output of free command too.

It has one partition so I tryed hdb and hdb1. (And even hdb0..)
Ill look into the free command when I got the time (and get home)
And then I also can trow here the Error.
Oh, this PC is first being installed in a innotek VirtualBox.
Since I want to check out if its working before I buy that 700$ Device =P
So, well if that can be a problem..
Oh and the SWAP is the Primairy Slave.
