I am trying to create swap space for diskless bootted systems but it doesn't seem to be working out.

Before the kernel panics the system reports reports
subnet mask 255.255.0 router 192.168.100.105 rootfs 192.168.100.105:/diskless_root swapfs 192.168.100.105:/conf/192.168.100.201/swap.192.168.100.201 swapsize 64000 KB hostname flip.


When booting the kernel panics with
  panic: nfs_boot: mountd swap, error=72

The NFS export looks like this
/diskless_root  -alldirs -ro -network 192.168.100
/usr            -alldirs        -maproot=0      -network 192.168.100

Disk slices are reported as
/dev/ad0s1a   504M   172M   292M    37%    /
/dev/ad0s1g   504M    12M   452M     3%    /tmp
/dev/ad0s1h    36G   7.1G    26G    22%    /usr

/dev/ad2s1e   3.9G   138M   3.5G     4%    /diskless_root

linprocfs     4.0K   4.0K     0B   100%    /usr/compat/linux/proc

Anybody have any ideas on correcting this?

TIA

Oh, I'm using isc's dhcpd to do all this. I made a modification to the dhcpd.conf and things have changed.

swapfs 192.168.100.105:/diskless_root/conf/192.168.100.201/swap.192.168.100.201 swapsize 64000 KB hostname flip

Now the kernel panics with:
panic: nfs_boot: lookup swap, error=2

Who writes these error messages? Sheeesh. But that's not the problem, I've googled and the only thing I come up with is something back from the last millenium that says to change some file then recompile.

Has anybody else gotten swap to work over nfs with disless booting and if so how did you overcome the problem?

The computer doing the diskless booting has 32 meg of ram.
