    error when making swap in remastering

    i get error when i type
    dd if=/dev/zero of=swapfile bs=1024 count=700k

    the error is

    217008+0 records out
    222216192 bytes transferred in 79.557125 seconds (2793165 bytes/sec)

    m8 i think you will have to del the swap partition and make a new one m8 but not 100% on that so i would wait till you get some info from who know if you do or not
