Re: Swap space


You can try this:
1- Create a swap file (use this if you can't change your partition layout) via the command:
dd if=/dev/zero of=/tmp/swap_file bs=1024M count=1
2- format the swap file with :
mkswap /tmp/swap
3- add the new swap file swap system
/sbin/swapon /tmp/swap_file
4- make the swap load on boot loading
echo /sbin/swapon /tmp/swap_file >> /etc/rc.local
