When I found my system being too slow, I created a linux-swap with the help of gparted. It has helped me highly, providing a reliable processing speed without any blackening of my screen. But whenever I turn off my system the partition turns to swap off mode. So whenever I turn on my system again, I need to swap on my linux-swap. I am tired of waking it up every time when I start off my system. Is there any way to make my linux-swap to swap on itself as and when the system boots?
Open a terminal and enter:
sudo nano /etc/fstab
You will be asked for your password. Then, add a line to the end of the file:
[swap partition] none swap sw 0 0
[swap partition] by the name of the partition, e.g.
/dev/sda5. Also, be careful not to accidentally change the other lines in the file. Save and reboot.
About nano, this should be written in the lower part of the terminal:
- Use Ctrl + O (an O as in oven, not a zero) to save the file
- Use Ctrl + X to exit from nano.
