Use 1 swap partition for 2 distros?
I currently have SuSE 9.1 installed with a 1GB swap partition. I want to install slackware 10 on the same disk (to a new partition). Would I be able to let Slack use the same swap partition that SuSE already uses (of course I will only ever be booted into one distro or the other), or will I have to create a new 1GB swap partition for Slack?

Yes, you can use the same swap for multiple distros. I did this recently having a 512MB swap to be used by Xandros, SuSE and Fedora Core 2.Registered Linux user #270181

Why do you have 1 gig of swap when you have 512 mb ddr ram?

probably one of those people that thinks swap space should be 1.5-2.5 times the size of your RAM

Guess I just never changed an old habit (plus HDD space is hardly expensive now-a-days)
