Does Mandriva 2007 install a swap disk when doing the automatic install?
I am using Mandriva 2007 Power Pack, just installed it. Previously I was using Slackware 11.0 when I set that up I set up a 384M swap disk and then my regular partition.
When installing Mandriva 2007 it seemed to do everything automatically so I am not sure if it set up a swap partition or not. But I do know that Mandriva is running *alot* slower than I was running Slackware.
Just to open firefox takes at least 2 minutes for just the window to open.
And just every basic operation is much slower.
I am running it on an older laptop with a P3 Celeron 650Mhz
with 192M RAM.
Any way I can speed up the system? Or reinstall it with a swap disk? Would the swap disk make a difference?
I am still really new to Linux. So I am learning as I go.
