Ubuntu: Forgot to add swap memory during installation [duplicate]


This question already has an answer here:

In my ignorance I didn't add swap memory to my install. So my question is, can I work without it and if not how can I add it to my existing install?

Love to get some feedback!


Can i work whitout swap?

It depends on your RAM size.If your RAM size is too low, you have to create swap otherwise you won't.

See this page for how much swap space do you really need, according to you RAM size.

How can i add it to my excisting install?

You can create a new swap partition using Gparted Utility.And don't forget to create a new fstab entry for your created swap partition.See this page for how to create swap partition and add it to the existing Ubuntu installation.
