I am considering to add swap to my FreedomBox. The 512 MB (LIME) are a bit thin for all the applications I am running and I think the occasional freezes are due to this topic. I used zram in the past which improved the situation a lot but want to use swap to try.
There is this nice tutorial: https://wiki.debian.org/Swap
So I am considering
- own partition
- using external USB memory
- swap file
Swap file looks like the simplest to implement. There is plenty of space on my 32 GB µSD card.
Has anyone tried this and can share his experience?
