I've recently switched to Linux mint and have thus far thoroughly enjoyed it. It runs what I would estime as 20% faster on my machine than Ubuntu, and I was able to jump right in. Ndiswrapper and all the codecs I need already installed.
However, on Jaunty I had learned to change the Swappiness priority and found that it really did help. However, on LM I have been unable to do that as I would have on Ubuntu.
I use this guide: http://www.chinwong.com/index.php?/site ... d_up_tips/
Would simply adding the vm.swappines value do the trick, or is there more to it?
Thanks for helping me out,
