I'm using ubuntu as a hypervisor with my production OSes running in VMware.
Since I installed everything onto an SSD, I placed the swap file off on a data HDD during install. Once I got everything setup, I needed to move the swapfile to a different section of a different physical HDD.
Being honest, I know enough about linux to get it to boot. I'm a windows power user who is completely flummexed trying to get this to work. I had no problems getting my virtual XP & 8 machines to use pagefiles I setup on HDDs even though their virtual machine files are stored on the SSD.
How do I get the swap space to turn on at boot. I have 14gb's of RAM, but VMware wants a swap file anyways. With terabytes of HDD space, I have no problem allocating a partition for this use, and without any other ideas, I used teh standard windows practice of as much swap space as you have ram.
Sorry for the long winded question.
