I'm setting up a new VM running "ubuntu-12.04.1-server-amd64.iso"
I've had problems in the past with an Ubuntu 512 meg swap not being enough for a LAMP VM server, and having to increase the VM memory to 2 gig to keep it from crashing/freezing.
I want to give a new Ubuntu build more swap space, 3 gig rather than 512 meg. But I don't see how to do this.
Guided partitioning? Yes
Size? Use 100% of disk (20 gig VM disk)
Here's what will be done (partition list, 512 meg swap). Write changes? NO
Partition edit screen:
Selecting one of these partitions gives no size change options.
Example partition options ..... no options for size change:
So, am I forced to not used guided partitioning at all and I have to figure out how to do the partition creation completely manually, to have a bigger swap?
A second option appears to be to do guidied partitioning, but use 3 gig less than the max disk space, then after it's all done, make a second swap from the remaining free space. Though this is more hassle yet.
