I am needing to install a persistent boot that has the swap partition, the persistent boot, and the casper-rw partition instead of the compressed file.
What I was thinking is breaking it down like this: 1024mb SWAP, 2gb Live Ubuntu 14.04 with persistent boot, 1gb casper-rw partition in ext4.
I have read on forums that making a partition of 1gb, naming it casper-rw, and deleting the casper-rw file will just load the casper-rw partition instead of the file.
The main reason I want to do it this way is the cost of USB drives. I do this all day remaking these drive from corruptions. Just replacing the casper-rw file doesn't really. I have hundreds of 4gb sticks, the 8gb sticks would cost money, and I'd still have the 4gb sticks.
now my questions:
1)Would a set-up like this work?
2)What file format does the 1024mb SWAP file need to be in.
3)What is the procedure for telling the grub, or file, to use the partition as a swap?
Additional information: This is the only HDD on the system, so it will always be SDA
