An Additional Swap Partition
2 October 2008 @ 14:56 BST

So I got another huge 1TB hard disk, and I figured that I could devote some of that to additional swap space.

I partitioned the disk with one partition, sdb8, formatted as a swap partition. This partition can be activiated like this:

sudo swapon /dev/sdb8

Of course next time, I boot this partition will not be mounted as a swap partition. To ensure that it is, I need to edit /etc/fstab.
