    Swaps file -Is it possible to change?
    Hi, I can not put my laptop to Hibernate as the error message is 'not enough swap' My laptop has 1.2 Gb RAM and the /proc/swap file shows me it has Filename Type Size Used Priority /dev/sda6 partition 596988 0 -1 I would like to extend the size of the swap partition. However I have read that I need to add an extra partition or file. As the swap file can be edited, the question is: - Can I change the value in the swap file to RAM*2 without having to add a new swap partition? Thank you!

    Hi,

    I can not put my laptop to Hibernate as the error message is 'not enough swap'

    My laptop has 1.2 Gb RAM and the /proc/swap file shows me it has
    Filename Type Size Used Priority
    /dev/sda6 partition 596988 0 -1

    I would like to extend the size of the swap partition.
    However I have read that I need to add an extra partition or file.

    As the swap file can be edited, the question is:
    - Can I change the value in the swap file to RAM*2 without having to add a new swap partition?

    Thank you!
