Same swap space for different Linux OSs


I am planing to use a couple fo Linux Distributions on my PC, and I plan to use only one swap space for all of them. Will this cause any trouble?

It shouldn't do. I use one swap space for about 5 distros and never had any problems.

The only problem you may get is if you want to hibernate the computer as linux stores the hibernation details there, though this behaviour can be changed.
