I have succesflly installed chakra several times on a 256M ram 1100hz processor (duron) laptop, using various methods:-I have used usb as swap partitions (just for the install) (the laptop has usb1.0 ports, still I find it more reliable to use a live-usb to install than a live-cd, in this case) -used a normal swap partition at the end of the hard-drive, then removed it after install, then inflated
this is a stock a87 boot.img which has swap disabled which is also known as zram
disabling the zam does not add up 51mb to main memory(need help regarding this)
zram also boosts the performance because its a part of mian memory
default value for zram is 60 means system will only swap if more memory needed by the system ,if we set this value to 100 then applications which are not active
[10:43 AM] ~ $ dmesg | grep zram
[ 23.623097] zram: module is from the staging directory, the quality is unknown, you have been warned.

I have a Dell XPS Ultrabook with a Hybrid Drive/32G of SSD. I have installed my root partition and swap on the SSD and /home on my HDD. I have 8G of Ram and had allocated only 4G of swap on the SSD. Now I want to hibernate my laptop and need more swap.
