/openswap.conf is the correct path. This package has already been updated with the fix. Make sure you update/reinstall the mkinicpio-openswap package (which will automatically rebuild the initramfs), rather than just update the hook file on your filesystem.

Sorry, forgot to mention: I already tried changing "/openswap.conf" to "/etc/openswap.conf", inside the hook config, and it didn't work (not sure why). Is there any command I need to run after changing this path in the hook config?

Hi guys, It's broken for me as well, I'm using the latest version as of this writing (0.1.0-3), together with mkinitcpio-busybox 1.27.2-1, and the only way I can get my laptop to boot is to either remove the openswap hook from /etc/mkinitcpio.conf or downgrade mkinitcpio-busybox. Now, to be fair, I'm not sure if it's an issue with busybox or openswap, but the latest versions of them are not talking well to each other. Cheers, Diogo

Bug report:

This is a bug in busybox: ~ % busybox sh # touch test.conf # source test.conf sh: source: test.conf: not found # source ./test.conf # I will report the bug upstream.

Editing the openswap.conf path in the hook worked for me. danieldk, did you root cause what changed in mkinicpio/busybox that broke this?

danieldk: ok, thank you for explaining.

hussam: because in the (cpio) ramdisk openswap.conf is stored in /. See or lsinitcpio /boot/initramfs-linux.img | grep openswap.conf

Hi. Sorry in advance for the ignorant question but why does the patch in the bug tracker say: - source openswap.conf + source /openswap.conf instead of: - source openswap.conf + source /etc/openswap.conf?

This does not belong in the bugtracker, I misinterpreted the 'community' in the 'community packages'. So, I will post the report here instead: Since the mkinitcpio-busybox update to 1.27.2-1 (I think), openswap fails with the error line 17: openswap.conf: not found Sourcing openswap.conf with an absolute path in the hook solves this on my system.
