The 'ram * 1.5 = swap' rule is IMO very outdated. It is okay for PCs with less than 512Mb ram. Today i'd use '1Gb - RAM = SWAP'
totally agree, however keep in mind that you'll need at least as much swap as your ram if you want to do suspend to disk. I have 640MB of ram and 1GB of swap (yes, it's really a lot, but it comes very handy when testing out experimental kernels :-P ) ciao -- Marco Bonetti Slackintosh Linux Project Developer: http://www.slackintosh.org Linux-live for powerpc: http://www.slackintosh.org/pub/rsync/mb/linux-live My webstuff: http://sidbox.homelinux.org My GnuPG key id: 0x86A91047
