Since latest version swapspace.service is changed, so swap is not automatically removed on service restart. Should this be reported here or upstream? Old service had ExecStop=/usr/bin/swapspace -e

armv7h compiles and installs just fine.

The new version fix the problem. I can confirm, that the error message does not appear any more.
Thank you very much for your quick response.

I've been able to test this thoroughly, the target systemd decides to delete changes at random, swapspace might be included in that. I've changed it so it has instead, and this shouldn't fail.

You might need to delete your /etc/systemd/system/ on upgrading. The best route is probably to do "systemctl disable swapspace.service" before upgrading, then do an enable again after upgrading.

Since some weeks I get this error message during boot:
systemd[1]: Job deleted to break ordering cycle starting with
This seems to be related to swapspace. But swapspace is still working fine.

The first warning is fine. swapspace uses the directory for the files it creates, there won't be any swap files pre-packaged however :)

The second warning should be fine too. Packages in base don't need to be explicitly defined as depends. I think namcap could be updated to be smarter about that.

Hmm, I hope I don't encounter any of the problems mentioned in the previous comments. That being said, this is what `namcap' outputs in yaourt:

`swapspace W: Directory (var/lib/swapspace) is empty
swapspace E: Dependency glibc detected and not included (libraries ['usr/lib/'] needed in files ['usr/bin/swapspace'])`

The daemon fails to deallocate the swap files. This is due to it failing to correctly identify the files in /proc/swap.

By setting VARPREFIX to "/", swappath becomes "//var/lib/swapspace".
The length of the string is computed before it is canonized, so swappath_len is off by one, finally preventing to validate the path of the files in /proc/swap.

A workaround is to set VARPREFIX to ""

If you install to somewhere other than /usr/local/ be sure to edit the
ETCPREFIX and VARPREFIX variables in src/env.h as well as the initscript

The default configuration path without modifying ETCPREFIX is /usr/local/etc/swapspace.conf not /etc/swapspace.conf
