http://ubuntuforums.org – To preface this, I would say that I am a Ubuntu newb, and have only been using this for fun for a while, never seroiusly got into the workings of the system. I installed ubuntu 12.04.1 32 from a live cd to my 64 GB USB Drive that I was not using. When I installed, I wasn't sure what to do about SWAP so i decided to install it without any. I want to add swap now. So far what I did was -Shrink the NTFS windows installation on the local hard drive -created a 6 GiB SWAP partition Now I have no idea what to do next, Please help! (Hardware)
