Re: Swapfile on a NTFS partition. Posible, doable or already done?

Update: not only doable, but done.

This would be a way:

sudo dd if=/dev/zero of=/mnt/512MiB.swap bs=1024 count=524288
sudo chmod 600 /mnt/512MiB.swap
sudo mkswap /mnt/512MiB.swap
sudo swapon /mnt/512Mib.swap

I didn't know that one could mount and unmount swap so easily with the system already running. I understand now why this is low priority, since it can be done outside live-build.

I know I didn't exactly discovered America here, but anyways, I hope it's useful for those like me who had no clue.

Would this imply changes to the scripts or something more complex? To be short: is it already possible to create a swapfile on an NTFS partition? As far as I understand, it is not... and if so, I believe this would be beyond live-debian

there's initial code in live-boot lingering around for a couple of
years. patches welcome to finish it up.
