In responds to a post on Page one,

Quote:
If you boot Puppy from a live CD on any machine open MUT in Start/File managers/Mut media utility tool, the drives will be displayed and if you have a Linux swap partition it will be shown with the words 'Swap Off' beside it.

This means that your swap partition is mounted, you can click on the 'Swap Off' to unmount it but this is not recommended.


I take this to mean, I've been reading the MUT wrong, When you use MUT it shows CDs HD partions as Mount in a boxed push button, when pushed it becomes Unmount in a boxed push button. I saw Swap as Swap Off, meaning swap was off, even though it was really Swap Off in a push button, to turn swap off.

Thanks for that enlightenment of Mut

I guess I do feel it should imply that there are not only answers, but that they actually worked -- and preferably that the person with the original problem thinks their problem is solved/resolved. ...

That's exactly right. I couldn't have put it better. No one else would do it so I started editing subject lines to make them more useful to someone searching the forum, either for help or to help, and putting "Solved" in the subject line when it looked to me like the problem had been worked out to the point that it might be helpful to someone else. However, the forum is too busy for me to keep up with every thread so I encourage anyone who asks a question to please edit the subject line of the thread he started as the topic develops and seems to require it.

I don't think most people expect to find once-and-for-all answers here in the forum, just something they can quickly try. If it works, great. If not, oh well...
