Actually, now that you have sized the partitions. you could use "gpart resize" to shrink the (effective) swap partition, leaving a "hole" (of unused diske space) -- for now. Later, you could use "gpart resize" again to reclaim (some of) the unused space for your swap partition, should you want to do so. Peace, david -- David H.
