In this update, we finished the installation script we had been working on for a long time and integrated the other scripts. Additionally came the” O Language ” update.

The work and updates we’ve been doing on “O Language” are now in place and you see the result as in the screenshots.

New version of Onix OS released
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.Read more “New version of Onix OS released”
How to use system drive or path swap drive for linux/unix
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):
dd if=/dev/zero of=~/swapfile bs=4096 count=131072
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.
Example of 1 GB :
1024 * 1024^2 / 4096 = 262144
and the command will become :
dd if=/dev/zero of=~/swapfile bs=4096 count=262144
The command will create a file named subinsblog on your home directory.
Now let’s create the SWAP space on the file and enable the SWAP :
sudo mkswap ~/swapfile -f && sudo swapon -p 1000 ~/swapfile
You’re RAM Memory is now increased. To check whether if it is increased, do the following command :
