As far as I can see, it is never being used.
I've checked on my other machines, and they all show some swap usage,
even if it is very small, eg 144 (I assume this is 144k) on my server,
with 4GB RAM.

The old machine I'm talking about has less than 1GB RAM,
and is running Fedora-12, so surely it must need to swap sometimes.

Is there any way of forcing a machine to swap?
