I had trouble to get the swapfile setup, as explained in the handbook (chapter "diskless operation").
I failed and then decided to do it in a more manual fashion:
The diskless rc.conf has a line 'swapfile="/home/swapfile"', where home is a read/write nfs filesystem from the server. This seems to work fine. Of course on the server, I have created a /home/swapfile of 64 Mb. The good thing is here, that no start-up script needs to know the size of this swapfile!
Now my question is: Is my setup so much worse than the one suggested in the handbook, where /etc/bootptab sets the two T128 and T129 variables (note that in this case I need to tell /etc/bootptab the exact size of the swapfile via T129) ?
