swap partitiion on same disk as X
Authored by: jackg on Dec 09, '01 05:14:57PM

I saw an article about how to create a partition on the same disk that X is installed on. The swapfile, now a disk, would appear on the desktop and the gentleman working on it was next going to figure out how to remove it from the desktop. Does anybody know the article I'm talking about---I'ld like to implement this.

Thanks
John

swap partitiion on same disk as X

This method - creating a disk image on your OS X partition - was discussed at length on the darwinfo site, and the bottom line - from the developers - is don't even think about using this method. It's highly inefficient, and failure prone.

http://www.darwinfo.org and then check our the developer and user forums for this (search on swapfile, fstab, virtual memory, that sort of thing).
