Linux Swap Space Mini-HOWTO: What you need Next Previous Contents

2. What you need

This procedure have a few requirements that need to be filled. I strongly recommend that you fill these requirements *anyway*, as there are several problems with older versions.

  1. MS-DOS 5.0 or newer and MS-Windows 3.1/3.11 OR MS-Windows 95/98
  2. A shutdown/init that knows to run a file on shutdown. (The SysVinit-2.50 package can do this, for example. SysVinit-2.50 is available from sunsite.unc.edu in /pub/Linux/system/Daemons. Almost all current distributions use this init package.)
