    Sharing Linux Swap?


    Hello everyone,
    I was hoping to do a dual boot on a HP laptop with Scientific Linux and Ubuntu. However, I'm not sure how to arrange the partitions and swap space. Can the two distros share a single swap space? If not, how do I go about the installation?

    Hello

    Yes, all Linux distros on a drive can share the same swap partition. During the installation, let the installer know that you want to use the existing swap partition.
