one or more swap partitions


Hi

I installed 3 linux distro's on my hdd and made 3 ext3 and 3 swap partitions. My question is: do I need 3 swap partitions or only 1 is enough ?

Thank you

One is sufficient so long as you don't use something like suspend resume.

You only need one swap partition, since you'll only be running one distro at a given time.
