So, following a suggestion of yours some time ago, as I have 4 GB RAM in
this box I compiled the kernel without swap code and ran without a swap
partition. It seemed to work well, though I didn't run any proper tests.
I've reverted to using swap more recently because I'm running the new
vmware-server package, which seems to eat memory wholesale and I don't want
to risk running out of space. I don't think swap space is actually being
used though. So far.
