Re: How to share swap partition across 2 linux installs?
I was intending to install debian pototo in addition to my normal slackware system, and as
I just want to install debian so as to play with the latest release I was going to setup a
separate user in /home say /home/debian (not my normal slackware user account.) Would this
be ok? Do you see any problems doingit this way?
