Re: Swap partition

[Date Prev][Date Next][Thread Prev][Thread Next][Date Index][Thread Index]

 



Unless you want to try to resize your partition, using tools like
resize2fs and fdisk (which sound risky), 

Is there some technical reason you can't have the swap in 2 chunks?  If
the priorities are set correctly, then the swap partition should be used
before the swap file would be.  

Some other Unixes have traditionally also used the swap partition as a
dump after a kernel panic, but I don't believe that Linux does this.
