comment How do I configure swappiness?
That's a good explanation for the most part, but the recommendation to change the default swappiness is counter-productive. Making the computer swap less usually causes more I/O because it keeps reloading useful data that it couldn't keep in the cache.

comment Why doesn't id-tool show latest added group?
@pbhj Yes. Either log out of your session, or do su - pbhj or ssh localhost or the like if you want to run a command as the new group quickly but less conveniently.
