    I agree that a 2GB swap partition should be enough in most cases.

    And agree that swap, root and home partitions should be left as they are.
    But if I remember well it is possible to add further swap space.
    Either a swap partition or a swap-file within a partition.
    To create a swap partition maybe shrink sda7 and create sda8 could be an option.

    The problem that I see is that the HDD is so small (60GB).
    And the linux swap, root (9GB) and home (13GB) partition are too very small.
    To work properly with them they should be much bigger.
    If you buy a HDD today they should be at least 300GB.

    How to create additional swap space I cannot say at this point.
    Because I never had to do it.

    With only 9 gig for root it may be a case of running out of temp file space.
