    Question Swap: No primary partition

    I am running Ubuntu 13.10 64bit on a system with 4GB RAM, dual booting with Windows

    Most people say that it is good to have swap on a system, and results in speed, so I used it with my previous Ubuntu installations.

    In my new HDD, I use 3 primary partitions: 1 for Windows OS, 1 for Ubuntu and 1 for data. The windows system also took up one primary partition for system, and I have only 4 MBR slots.
    Effectively I have no primary partition for SWAP. I do not know it happened earlier, but back then I had a partition for swap as well

    How can I create swap in my current setup?
    I found this article:, but it refers to an old version of Ubuntu. Also, he asks us to ensure hibernation is working, and that is a problem in Ubuntu 13.10
