Its a good basic rule. It just depends on what you run. Having a 1:1 or a 2:1 (mem swap) is a good idee even when you don't use it. A computer that normaly don't need swap can crash if it sudenly does need a little space. -- Alex Articles based on solutions that I use: http://www.kruijff.org/alex/index.php?dir=docs/FreeBSD/ _______________________________________________ [EMAIL PROTECTED] mailing list http://lists.freebsd.org/mailman/listinfo/freebsd-questions To unsubscribe, send any mail to "[EMAIL PROTECTED]"
