Question How to unmount actual swap and mount a new(bigger) swap space?


Hi,

I have 792 MB of swap space. Now I am installing Oracle Database, that requires 1GB of swap space.

How to unmount actual swap and mount a new(bigger) swap space?

Thanks!!

To disable your existing swap, type swapoff -a and then swapon /dev/hdxx where /dev/hdxx is your new swap partition (or swap file). You can use more than one swap partition/file just by enabling swap on all the swap files/partitions your system knows about with swapon -a. Or you can enable swap on each partition/file individually. See man swapon for more details.
