Swap Memory

Hi, all,

Is there a way to adjust the amount of swap memory I have in Linux after I have installed? Or will I have to re-install Linux all together?

With parted you can resize your swap partition. Once you have done this rebooting should give you your new swap amount. You probably have qtparted or gparted on your system which will allow you to do a graphical resize... if not you might have to run parted from the command line. If you don't have parted installed at all, or have any other questions let us know.
