Re: ram increasing

Dne, 04. 02. 2010 15:54:49 je roberto napisal(a):
actually the swap space is 1906 MB (almost twice as the ram) but i
wonder if it is mandatory or simply better to double it again when i
double the size of the ram as well;

As you surely know, that's a metaphysical question, like does God exist or not. *Unless* you plan to use hibernation (suspend to disk), for which the swap partition is used: in that case, your swap partition should at least match your installed RAM -- although in practice, memory pages are compressed before hibernating, so you might actually get away with a smaller swap partition than your RAM.
