Did you try to add another swap entry to /etc/fstab pointing to hdex? I
think that should work, send me your current fstab and I can help with
that. Swap partitions that "are not there" will be ignored, I think, and
will just trigger an error during the boot phase.

You have to download the .src.rpm, not the kernel-source .i386.rpm. You
can find it in the "System" section of the Planet CCRMA pages. The
.src.rpm includes all the configuration files. There was a post not that
long ago with the steps you have to take to rebuild and change a
configuration (Patricio de la Cuadra was asking about that, I think).

I normally use make xconfig

Wait, here is the email I was referring to:


I think what you have to do is to enable the configuration option you
were taking about last week and then boot with a kernel option that
reverses the search.
