    [SOLVED] Where to mount the swap

    I am going to get a new computer soon. I would like to get a WD Raptor and mount /. I will mount /home on a much larger 7200RPM drive. Which of these drives should the swap partition be on? Thanks.

    Re: Where to mount the swap

    It doesn't matter.

    I personally have a small swap space at the beginning of each of my two drives. Theoretically the kernel should be intelligent enough to use the swap space which is on a drive not currently being accessed by other operations.
    If people were nicer, I'd answer more queries here!
