But the Mac canīt open it due to to little swap memory. does anybody know how I can see how much swap memory I have and how to increase on a Mac Book? It has a 2 GHz Intel Core 2 Duo System.
What do mean by swap memory ?
Do you a Apple icon left on the screen ?
There is option there called about this MAC
Click on it and than choose more info .
It gives a lot of info about you're MAC including you're memory
Which MAC OS are you running Tiger , leopard , snow leopard.
If you are running snow leopard and you're is EFI64 and you still have free slots in that case you can upgrade the memory
