Disable swap?

Forum thread started by xvedejas on Sun, 2011-06-26 07:40

I'm running Haiku installed to a USB drive (2GB) and it looks like swap space is taking up a whole gigabyte of this, leaving me with around 200MB of free space. Is it possible to disable swap to disk?

Yes. It can be done via the VirtualMemory preferences.

Re: Disable swap?

The virtual memory preferences show that virtual memory is disabled; but the diskUsage application shows that /boot/common/var/swap is taking up a big portion of disk space.
