Quick question here. I have been using a swap size of 70MB for the last
2 months. It has worked perfectly with no problems, although with 32 MB
of RAM, I rarely exceed 10 MB of swap usage. Am I looking for trouble
here or is the swap size able to actually be larger than 16MB? I haven't
tried this large swap with any kernel before 1.3.8x, so is that the
reason it has worked for me?
