I am swapping on lvm devices and aving a strange problem with swapoff.
I have the swap device configured in /etc/fstab, the relevant line is:
/dev/vg1/swap none swap sw 0 0
swap seems to work OK but I have a strange problem with swapoff:
# swapoff /dev/vg1
swapoff: /dev/vg1: Invalid argument
If I comment out the swap line in /etc/fstab and start the swap manually
with swapon after system boot, then swapoff and swapon seem to work as
OS: Debian 3.0r1 "woody"
Kernel: 2.4.18, 2.4.18 patched with VFS lock patch, and 2.4.20 patched
with VFS lock patch (problem is the same on various machines running all
The problem occurs in the same way on LVM swap devices built on disk
partition physical volumes, and also on software-RAID physical volumes.
