swap/hibernation trouble

Postby tha_lode on Thu Sep 11, 2008 3:28 am

I would like to use hibernation since my computer is quite old and booting takes 1 min & 10 secs.

However I get an error message about there not being enough swap when I try it, and then the desktop returns.

I use a 8 gig ssd drive from Samsung, and have 1 gig Ram on the computer. Do I have to increase the swap? If so; how do I do this?

That's what you are told :)
You need a swap that is at least the size of your memory
There's not much space and it's a SSD disk but that does not change the basics
Open the partitioning manager (I think it is gparted in xfce) and change the size of the swap to at least one GB. If it already has that size don't do anything and post back, because then there is some other problem

Unfortunately the Lan card kicked the bucket so I'm going to have to scrap the computer. Thanks for your help though.

LAN card is the only problem? I'll take that computer off your hands. Replacing the LAN card should be cheap.

Is there a pcmcia connector?
I think you could get a pcmcia wired or wireless for a bargain price

Nope.

It has four unreliable USB ports and a Firewire port which I haven't tried.

...and a COM port....
