i started using linux one month ago (suse 9.3 pro) and at the time i had 256mb ram (that's the recommended amount of memory). i put 512mb swap since most websites said a good amount of swap is 2*physical memory
recently i bought additional 512mb memory so right now i have a total of 768mb physical memory. now the questions:
1. should i increase the amount of swap to atleast 1gb?
2. i'm a normal home user so i can't seem to use up all my physical memory (application data never uses more than 30% of the total phys. memory). that's why my free swap space is always at 100%.. do i really need that much swap space? 1gb or even 512mb seem way too much
sorry if these questions are stupid. also i'm not from english speaking country so my english can be pretty bad
