swap partition in mc
« on: February 08, 2015, 07:44:54 PM »
Hi all,

Am using a mc 3.8.4 boot cd to run a backup server using samba and rdiff-backup.

rdiff-backup was giving me trouble with large backups and I'm going to see if creating a swap partition helps, as the server only has 1gb of ram.

Do I have to setup the swap partition somewhere in the configs or is it sorted at boot time.

Thanks for any advice about swap partitions on microcore.
Remus
Live long and prosper.

Hi remus
It will find the swap partition at boot time.
