Hello *

i need to use a swapfile larger 2 GB on amd64.
I have read an earlier posting of Andi, that this is possible.

Since i still get only 2 GB Swap signatures when calling mkswap
my questions:

Do i have to enforce a size > 2 GB manually when calling mkswap or do i have to use a patched
mkswap ?

For those curios, why i don't use multiple swap partitions:

i'd like to do suspend to disk on a laptop with 2 GB Mem so
i need a littler bit more than those 2 GB continuos swap.

TIA
Micha
