    Question increase swap space for oracle 10g

    I want to install Oracle 10g database in ubuntu 8.04 hardy heron,All the dependencies were satisfied bit it failed to install because it requires about 1024 mb of swap space whereas i have only about 450mb
    How can i increase the swap space. I dualboot xp & ubuntu onmy 80gb harddrive & ubuntu takes up about 14 gb & the rest is windows.
    P.s. I have it as a debian package.

    You can boot into a LveCD and run the GParted (System > Administration > Partition Editor) and shrink either your windows or Linux partition to expand your swap partition.

    Or, you can create a swap file and avoid messing with your partition layout and the risks that go with it. To make a swap file, use the following steps.

    Create the swap file
    sudo dd if=/dev/zero of=/mnt/1024Mb.swap bs=1M count=1024
    Format swap file for use
    sudo mkswap /mnt/1024mb.swap
    Activate the swap
    sudo swapon /mnt/1024mb.swap
    Add the swap file to /etc/fstab. First open an editor
    gksudo gedit /etc/fstab
    Then add the following line to the end
    /mnt/1024Mb.swap  none  swap  sw  0 0
