Sharing swapspace between two Linux installations?
I have installed the ELX business desktop on my home computer and found that during install it grabs all the available swap partitions (which I created to be used by different Linux installations; one swap partition for each).
(1) Is that a problem?
- Does Linux rely on these swap partitions having the same content as at the last shutdown?
- Or is the swap partition initialized anyway by the boot process?
(2) Can I save space by just creating one swap partition for all my Linux installations?
Thanks for your comments.
