I installed Natty on my laptop with default options. I guess it created a swap partition equal to the size of my RAM. Every time I try to hibernate I get the "not enough swap" message, which is annoying. I want to hibernate! Why can't you just use some of my 20GB free HD space to hibernate? I only have 1GB RAM on this old geezer.
I've seen the swap faq @ http://help.ubuntu.com/community/SwapFaq but it's painfully dense. It shows me how to create a swap file and turn that on, but doesn't explain the following:
- Will the system hibernate to that swap file, or will it still be confused because the swap partition is there and too small?
- Do I need to get rid of the swap partition? I don't desperately need the space, but I would like to reclaim it because this computer has a pretty small HD.
- Why is this all so difficult?
