    Question kswapd help


    I was just wondering if anybody could please give me any ideas whats up with me new (not working) linux box.

    comp is 3yrs old
    pentium II i think
    44mb ram
    everything else pretty much standard
    compaq presario 2282

    i have installed Red Hat 7.1 and Mandrake 8.0 at different times, 3 times a piece (got dial-up so cant really d/l the newest versions, have to look out for one on disk somewhere)
    everytime i had the same problem on boot
    Starting kswapd V1.8
    then nothing, everything looks up including the keyboard
    with the 3 seperate installations of each os i had 3 different swap partitoin sizes
    first 256mb followed by 512mb and 126mb.
    still had same problem.
    evil_enchilada spent along time trying to help me which i am grateful for but to no prevail
    said probably a hardware problem
    does anybody know what kind of hardware could cause this to happen? or if it could be due to another problem?

    Thank You for your time.

    Your modem? Your hardrive may have bad sectors causeing the program to miss some code.
