This didn’t work for me when I tried to create the swapfile under /dev/swapfile, gave error invalid argument when entering “swapon /dev/swapfile”, I got it to work by creating the file /swapfile, works now.
I don’t think there is a way to force Linux to use swap. Seeing that free gives you the correct swap size, I’m pretty sure it’ll use it when you run out of real memory. If you haven’t already, install X and VNC, that’ll guarantee the Sheeva Plug will use swap.
