Random Freezes? Try changing the swappiness!

Post by peterldg » Sun Feb 26, 2017 12:09 am

I have a macbook air 2015. It's always silky smooth with Linux Mint Cinnamon. No duel boot mess for me. Total format and start fresh with the latest iso!

Well, my latest update resulted in random freezes. I thought it was a hardware issue. I spilled beer on the keyboard. I thought the gooey dried hops was messing with my thermals.

Then I changed my swappiness from the default 60 to 10 using the directions here: https://community.linuxmint.com/tutorial/view/998

All is well! No more freezes! Be careful with your beer!
