My SWAP on all domUs is not working.

On dom0 I have logical volume (LVM) created and formated for swap. I
can enable this volume under dom0 as a swap (tested).
On domUs I am unable to enable it. I have swap support compiled in
kernel. My fstab is properly configured.

Can someone advice?


what does swapon (swap device) in the dom-u tell you? Anything out to
stderr or syslog? Or is it just politely ignoring the device?

Is the swap FS itself present in the guest in /dev, and does mkswap
have any problems preparing it?

Why are you bothering with LVM in a DomU? Seriously? Since you can do the LVM handling in Dom0, and simply use primary partitions for DomU?
