I have an existing installation with a swap partition, and I want to boot a Ubuntu 10.04 Desktop LiveCD without using the swap partition. I want to avoid using the swap partition so that I can resize it and other partitions.
I was wrong, and the Live CD does use an existing swap partition. There is no
noswap cheat code listed (I tried the noswap cheat code anyway, but the swap was still used).
I'm stumped on how to prevent using swap at boot time, but for repartitioning purposes the other posters suggested how to turn the swap off.
