I run 1GB/2GB boards headless, so haven't run into any memory issues as yet, so I haven't needed to enable swap space on the pine64 (yet!) Wink

martinayotte has since posted the way I would normally create and enable swap files. When working with swap partitions, you still use the mkswap command to prepare the swap space and swapon to enable it. And you can add either the file or partition version of swap space to the /etc/fstab line in order to make it persistent across reboots.

You would add (using the correct path instad of /dev/hdb1) the following to /etc/fstab for a swap partition...

/dev/hdb1       none    swap    sw      0       0

... or the below (again, replacing /swapfile with the path to the swapfile) for a swapfile.

/swapfile       none    swap    sw      0       0

This article may help if anyone wants to learn more about the reasons for and how to make swap files/partitions.
