And thank god they are finaly moving from a partiton based swap to a file based swap system. ;)

Naaa ... they are not moving : a partition is always better than a file because RAW-device access is always faster than cooked-device ( file ) access.

And the file based swap strictly requires that the filesystem in which it resides is already accessed and mounted which is not always true in all cases.

File based swap support was added to have the possibility to easy expand swap space when it's needed.

It's still useful ...expecially when you have a constant heavy loaded system and you can't add more memory or don't have a hotplug memory system.

I am not sure of it ... look at the OS support for the (new) GPT partitioning system for example : en.wikipedia.org/wiki/...ort_of_GPT

You should always have a swap partition also when you have enough memory and expecially for laptops because without a swap partition your system will be not able to hybernate. In this case you need at least a swap partition that has a size equal to the amount of your RAM ( eg 4GB )

na, it works the same way if you use a partition or a file for swap. its up to you what you want to use =) wiki.ubuntuusers.de/Swap

thats the nice thing on linux, you can simply choose what you think is best for your purposes, instead of having to do what chiquita says others are doing and then just agreeing with it !! :wacko: :grin:

Uhm ... I still prefer the swap partition for performance issue ...

better if the swap partition is placed on another disk just in case at least there's a 2nd disk of course :) ( usually not on a notebook :grin: )

Q: How to rip Real Media streams using Linux?

A: rtmpdump is a tool to download rtmp:// and rtmpe:// streams. 
    http://rtmpdump.mplayerhq.hu/
    Works great. I downloaded all videos of the WBC with it.


Q: How to rip ISO images using Linux (so they can be stored on modern 1.5 TB drives)?

A: http://www.acetoneteam.org/
    I prefer a older version of it though where it was only a frontend for   small tools like bin2iso, nrg2iso, etc. so i could delete the frontend and use the tools instead.

With 4GB of ram nowdays being default on desktops, we should move away from using swap, or at least keep it as a small file. Thats just for the average desktop user mind you.

Ha.

Sure you can , but when hybernation is active ( eg on a laptop ) Windows uses a separate file for hybernation ( a hidden file in the C:> partition ) whit a fixed size equal to your installed RAM (max 3GB for Windows 32 bit because 3GB is the default max amount of physical memory that Windows 32 bit can see and use , even if you have 200 GB of memory )
