question re: strange swap/usb behavior


Recommended Posts

pineapple ver 2.7.0

having issues with the swap partition taking over the sdcard. this happens after issuing the 'mkswap /dev/sda2' command.

I've never had this problem before, and I've used many sdcards.

Now I'm having this problem no matter what sdcard I use.

I started from scratch on an sdcard and left the second partition unformatted, then loaded infusions onto the larger partition from the pineapple bar. This seemed to work, so I formatted the leftover space to ext4 and all, then put it into pineapple, issued mkswap /dev/sda2 and got

root@Pineapple:/# mkswap /dev/sda2
Setting up swapspace version 1, size = 1686820 KiB
no label, UUID=77689b90-181a-4be3-9cb5-c6a4617434c1

funny thing is, that size up there is correct. 1.6gb, but after a reboot, the swap size becomes

root@Pineapple:~# free
             total         used         free       shared      buffers
Mem:         29480        27276         2204            0         3788
-/+ buffers:              23488         5992
Swap:      3373640            0      3373640

...which is 3.3gb! so lost

can someone shed some light here? lol

I swear I never had to do anything like this before, but...

..after looking into things, I found that the pineapple was mounting the storage side of my sdcard @ sdb1, so I just changed the fstab to reflect that and left everything else alone. Fixed. I can install modules from the pineapple bar to usb, and I have a swap partition now as well.

Could this strange behavior be attributed to the sdcard being on a 3/4G modem? I just gotta make this thing into a standalone attack platform.

Going to Disney in 3 days, lol

here Mickey, Mickey...
