I am making a fresh install dual-boot for kali and ubuntu. I had this question in my mind if I will create a swap-area of 32GB (16 Gb RAM) will it work for both the Linux distro?


It will work, but you won't be able to hibernate the system (a.k.a. suspend to disk) as the current system state is saved to a swap partition. You could overcome this problem by hibernating into a swap file, that would require tweaking of kernel parameters.

  • Means it will lead to conflicts. So, I think I will create a separate swap area for kali and ubuntu – Mrityunjay Kumar Feb 10 at 2:11
