Adding SWAP Partition

view story

http://www.linuxquestions.org – Talked my boss into installing Ubuntu on a desktop at work, XP kept locking up with BSOD. The desktop has 1GB ram and the SWAP partition is currently 1GB. PC is running very slow and I was thinking additional SWAP space would improve performance. Could anyone please explain the best way to add a SWAP partition to this desktop? I did find one method on thegeekstuff.com from 2010, URL attached. Would this a good method to try, or is there a better way? Thanks from a Linux nooby. http://www.thegeekstuff.com/2010/08/...dd-swap-space/ (HowTos)
