Can someone confirm that using a swapfile if you don't have a savefile actually works? I work without a savefile, am able to activate a swapfile but I can't see that it is actually in operation (can't see any swapping taking place).


i can confirm this. i use a swapfile without having a savefile and it gets used, when i browse big sites on the web

I always run frugal without a save file and can confirm that a swap file/partition will be used if the system runs low on memory.

A handy trick is to make a swapfile on the fly when you realize your going to run out of space (load 50 tabs in firefox with graphics and wait for it Laughing Laughing ).
