10.3: Move swap to another partition in Panther
Authored by: EatingPie on Nov 14, '03 05:03:18PM
The overall disadvantage of your method is that you have to put explicit /dev/disk* values into /etc/rc; whereas with my method, the unique place the Swap partition is referenced by device name is in /etc/fstab. This simplifies maintenance.

Agreed! I would be happy for a simpler method... though even with your given arguments, I am still loate to eliminate the code the extricates errant swap files on the root volume....

That said, can you please post a full explanation of your solution. IE, what files to change, and exactly how. I have a good idea from your posts already, but something explicit would be handy.

TIA!
