As a result of the updates we have made for a long time, we have released a lot of fixes, but none of them are stable, so we couldn’t share them. In addition to all the older versions, we released a special version for the film Tron. In addition, a lot of system and kernel updates are available. Additional repository updates are available.
I heard that it is possible to use a portion of hard disk as RAM in Windows. I wondered if this trick is available for Ubuntu, so I googled about it and couldn’t find anything related to it. But I found out an AskUbuntu answer of using USB sticks as RAM. I did the same trick on Hard Disk and it works !! This trick can be accomplished with the use of some small commands in Terminal. The RAM memory increase can’t be noted in the System Monitor application.So, Let’s begin. Create a file of 512 MB (The 512 indicates the RAM memory to be added):
The yellow background text above shows the count of the file we are going to create. This count and bs determines the file size. This is how I got the count :
512 * 1024^2 / 4096 = 131072
The yellow background text above shows the file size we need to create in Mega Bytes (MB). If you need to create SWAP space with more than 512 MB change the yellow background text above to the MB you want and get the result of the calculation. The result is the count.
