[ubuntu] Swap resized

http://ubuntuforums.org – Hello all, When I installed 12.04 Precise 64bit, I created a 16Gb swap partition. I know, I'm an idiot! After months of use, I never once saw the swap use more that about 300kb of hd space. Because of this, I shrunk the swap partition down to 4Gb. I didn't want to eliminate it altogether as I've read this can cause problems. (I have 8Gb of Ram and really believe that I don't need a swap partition! Am I wrong?) I've never seen the Ram utilization surpass 30 percent! I now have an unused 10.9Gb partition that isn't being utilized. For my humble use of Linux, I would just like to add that (Hardware)
