Linux Swap


Hello,

One Linux Swap is shared by all Linux OS on my hard disk right? Thanks for your time.

So long as you're only running 1 of the distros at any given time. (I could imagine running one on the real h/w and one in a VM).

Also, sleep functions may save to the swap partition - I don't know what the effect of sleeping in on distro and resuming in another might be...?
