10.6: Completely Disable Virtual Memory in Snow Leopard
Authored by: idontwanttoregis on Jul 01, '12 10:56:34AM

I would highly recommend NOT doing this if you use highly ram hungry applications such as Motion.

I have 16gb of ram and during a render, motion used up all my Free and Inactive RAM, which completely locked up the system with beachballs and required a hard power down. I re enabled paging and everything is fine now.
