    Swapoff on Wubi Lubuntu 12.10 during startup

    Hi, I would like to disable swap on Wubi Lubuntu 12.10 during startup.

    Turn off swap manually:
    Code:
    sudo swapoff -a
    Turn on swap on Wubi Lubuntu:
    Code:
    sudo swapon /host/ubuntu/disks/swap.disk
    gksudo leafpad /etc/fstab

    Code:
    # /etc/fstab: static file system information.
    #
    # Use 'blkid' to print the universally unique identifier for a
    # device; this may be used with UUID= as a more robust way to name devices
    # that works even if disks are added and removed. See fstab(5).
    #
    # <file system> <mount point>   <type>  <options>       <dump>  <pass>
    /host/ubuntu/disks/root.disk /               ext4    loop,errors=remount-ro 0       1
    /host/ubuntu/disks/swap.disk none            swap    loop,sw         0       0
    What about /etc/sysctl.conf and "vm.swappiness=0"?

    Any help is greatly appreciated!

    I removed the line: "/host/ubuntu/disks/swap.disk none swap loop,sw 0 0"

    gksudo leafpad /etc/fstab

    Code:
    # /etc/fstab: static file system information.
    #
    # Use 'blkid' to print the universally unique identifier for a
    # device; this may be used with UUID= as a more robust way to name devices
    # that works even if disks are added and removed. See fstab(5).
    #
    # <file system> <mount point>   <type>  <options>       <dump>  <pass>
    /host/ubuntu/disks/root.disk /               ext4    loop,errors=remount-ro 0       1
    Before:
    free -m
    Code:
                 total       used       free     shared    buffers     cached
    Mem:          1749       1127        622          0        427        494
    -/+ buffers/cache:        205       1544
    Swap:          255          0        255
    After:
    free -m
    Code:
                 total       used       free     shared    buffers     cached
    Mem:          1749       1130        619          0        431        496
    -/+ buffers/cache:        201       1548
    Swap:            0          0          0
