    Has anyone experimented (successfully, yes?) with changing the size of the swap partition on an Aspire One?

    I've used the 'swapoff' command to temporarily disable my swap partition. Considering how I use the machine (web, ssh into other machines) I hardly ever hit the swap space. And when I do I'm typically using less than 100K.

    Since I've got the 8GB SSD model and by default Linpus creates a 1GB swap it seems that I could grab back half a gig by resizing my swap partition.

    Anyone ever try this?

    I've just gotten my one configed and decked out with all the sw that I need but haven't done a full backup to another drive yet; until I do I'm loathe to blindly try something like this, as I may be missing something.

    So has anyone given this a go?
