Re: Deferred swap reservation failure

Hi Nauro:

Looking at 'dmesg' probably means that your looking at a past event. The kernel buffer is circular and unless there has been sometihing new to fill it you will see what you had. Look at '/var/adm/syslog/syslog.log' where you have timestamps to read, too.
