Installation / Re: SWAP PARTITION vs Swap File
« on: June 28, 2019, 05:32:30 pm »
Can I use this same procedure on Ubuntu 18.4,  though physically that swap partition is 85mb away?

OK. It worked on the second try.
Filename            Type      Size   Used   Priority
/dev/sda11                                partition   7813116   0   -2

Can I delete the swapfile now? Is that the right priority?

Still using the Swap File, I guess. What des the FSTAB tell you?

OK. I installed GParted, formated the SWAP partition as SWAP, then set the flag (didn't show before).

How do i test if it is now using the SWAP partition, and if so, and then can I delete the Swap file in root?

Oh, I know Windows doesn't use Ubuntu Swap, I'm not a compete moron.

Well, would updating the stack to HWE 4.x give you many new updates? I got updates up to about May 22

Does this all apply to Peppermint 5 also??? It is 5 years now, if it was based 14.4 Ubuntu, and I see it's getting almost no updates.  If not, can you provide instructions for Pep5, if it is possible to upgrade it?

OK, MOST of the time I think won't need much SWAP at all, with 8gb RAM and I5...    a 1gb file is fine (can I expand that somewhere?), but for some things like serious video editing, or maybe those hideous Windows "Version Feature Updates", I will, I presume.  There is no informational anywhere that I read that a dedicated SWAP partition was now obsolete or not recommended, and the Installation was strange- it just chose a partition, luckily the one I created named Peppermint, never asked where I wanted to put it; or anything about a Swap partition. Freaked me out for a while.

Would doing that in GParted also make it findable to Peppermint??  Mostly I'm going to mostly use Pep9 (hate the Ubuntu file manager and the applications layout), so I see in DISKS Program that EDIT PARTITION has a LINUX SWAP type file- should I check "System Partition" checkbox?

Can we update this for Peppermint 9??

To say make it default boot up Windows, would one just change the GRUB boot on Peppermint from  DEFAULT BOOT= sda,12   to =sda,3

No didn't set swapon flag, thought Pep would search for any partition called SWAP.  I created the Windows Partitions in Windows, then the EXT4 partitions in Ubuntu (I think).  Playing with it in Pep9 "Disks", in Mount Options, should I list SWAPON in the line with nosuid, nodev, nofail, x-gvfs-show..... and where exactly? Oh, I see EDIT PARTITION has a LINUX SWAP type file- should I check "System Partition" checkbox? If I do that will Pep9 just pick it up on bootup or must it be led by the nose?  [Or should I do it from Ubuntu 18.4?] I remember obvious such flags in GParted, whatever happened to that? Can I install GParted, seems it's discontinued, because the DISKS doesn't let me move partitions, which with 17, I have to.

Well, youz didn't answer the question - is having a separate near SWAP partition better or a Swap file??? My Ubuntu partition is +90gb, is that too big a jump for back and forth writes? The SWAP Partition is just before Pep. How would I resize the Swap file?  I don't really have too much space on Peppermint, planned all data to be on EXT-DATA partition, shareable with Ubuntu.

I set up a 8gb SWAP partition physically after Ubuntu and before Peppermint, and created the Peppermint Ext 4 Partition BEFORE Pep9 Installation. On Installation (from TRY PEP) I was presented with almost no options, I think it just picked the right partition, nothing about SWAP either, so it is creating a 1 gb Swap internal file. Is it better to leave that, or force it to use the SWAP partition?  Is the Swap file increased in size as needed? In most normal use with 8gb RAM, you don't need much Swap, but when I do video editing, that might become an issue.

AHA, Fast Startup WAS turned back on, obviously by some update, though I thought I checked it after the first time it wouldn't write.
 Well, why did booting up in recovery mode allow NTFS writing? It didn't allow writing to ANY Windows partition then (6), they can't all be "dirty".  First thing I did was shut off Fast Start-up, Hibernation, Secure Boot, Smartbyte, anything that could interfere with dual boot, or any harware/bios updates and only do full shutdowns.

Oh, when it asks "Do you want to empty trash" on closing Windows partitions, should I say yes or no? Any Peppermint tricks for Dells, had a douzy of a time getting both volume control and brightness Function keys (F2,3,11,12) to work correctly. Any way to force text editor to always save as .txt? To get it to default boot to Windows (better with all off their updates), you would edit Pepperrmint Grub: default boot (SDA,12) to (SDA,3)?

Curses, booting up Pep normally, and it again can't write to Windows. So it seems it must be a problem with Peppermint. I made a /swap file (not during installation, before; physically between Peppermint and Ubuntu partitions) but it doesn't mount it, and creates a 1 gb swapfile in file system / Also notice a SD card isn't auto mounting- I have to click on it in file manager
