I have recently installed Ubuntu 17.10 Desktop on VMWare workstation with all defaults (including updates and third party software), after installation i checked and there is no swap space/partition, it is required to install Oracle Database 11g. there is only 1 partition of all 60GB, how i can create it and reduce the size of existing / partition? please help. i used sudo lsblk -o NAME,LABEL to check. EDIT: sorry i found it with command sudo swapon --show but it has 2GB only, how i can increase the size?

  • This is the new default. The swap is now a file. – user68186 Apr 11 '18 at 10:24
