Re: Unable to obtain requested swap space

Hi,

Has all the swap space defined in /etc/fstab been mounted ? (swapon -s)

If this has only started happening since the power problem, I'll guess that you lost one or more of your swap disks.

Cheers,

Maybe try booting single user or off the Tru64 CD and checking your drives for issues.

Also, 'swapon -s' output.
