My computer has more than 64KB of RAM (8GB), if I run out of memory I want things to crash so I know I'm out of RAM so I'll buy some instead of say wandering why my computer is running slowly when I can just spend another $40 for another 8GB of RAM.
I'm running Kubuntu in VirtualBox. I'm not sure if there is any way to permanently disable the swap file after the installation has finished.
As with previous Linux installs I've found that the newer GUI installers do NOT provide an option to have a single partition without a swap forcing me to use the old DOS/Console styled installers which do. If I have to reinstall from scratch (not a huge ordeal for me) are there multiple installers or does the regular Kubuntu installer provide a manner to install without a swap file?
I'm absolutely sure I want to do this, I have not run a pagefile in years in both XP and other Linux distros I've tried and enjoy my systems being responsive.
I'm semi-capable in the console though please do not ask me to type a hundred lines to do a simple copy/paste or text edit, I'm interested in Linux for production not a hobby.
I'll be happy to both accept and up-vote whatever answer works as well as clarify anything.
