You don't need to backup and reinstall. Read the man page for mkswap; you can create a swap file rather than a swap partition. I.e. # fallocate --length 12G /swap # mkswap /swap will create a 12GiB file, /swap, that can be used as a swap file.
an other solution is to increase the swap partition size with a gparted dvd. best regards, -- Pierre Frenkiel
