Re: Strange happenings since a few days - getting logged out to a termi screen, things OK'd and back to login screen

it's most unlikely to be some Virus, that is causing your issue,
& so you shouldn't need to be buying E-SET's freaking Linux antivirus right now .. ..

it's going to some hardware issue, that is dropping your system back to a shell prompt:

Re: Swap file?

it seems that the LM19 version & the last version of LM18x did start to use a SwapFile, rather than an actual /swap partition. - whether this is progress, or not, is a moot point. the LM19 series also sets it's own file-size, for that SwapFile, as well. if you do wish to use the 'old method' then yo...
