How to enable swap file on SD card

Posted

Because of small amount of memmory in current FOS (I use production Alcatel One Touch Fire with FOS 1.0.1, btw still waiting for seriously delayed 1.1) it would be good idea to enable swap file on SD card when it all run on Linux in low level.

Then my question is how to enable swap partition on SD card ? I'm able to create Linux swap on my Linux netbook without any problem but now how to enable it on FOS device ???

Hi,

Thanks for using Firefox OS, can you tell me what country you are in? Just two days ago the v1.1 update rolled out to the Venezuela Alcatel devices, so this is hopefully a good sign of updates coming to other countries.

I don't know the answer to your swap partition question, but developer questions are also being asked/answered here : http://stackoverflow.com/questions/tagged/firefox-os

Maybe this question is answered there or you would find a dev who has the answer there?

Thanks for your reply. I'm from Poland, AOTF has been bought in T-mobile Poland. Yeah I heard that Venezuela got it already. I know few people who also bought AOTF in polish T-mobile and we are waiting for update quite long now. The worse that Mozilla, Alcatel nor T-mobile didn't provide any information about date or even status of the update ...

After conversation with people on #b2g (irc.mozilla.org) the conclusion is that kernel is prepared by phone manufacturer (Alcatel in this case). Then could you provide me email address/phone number or any contact to Alcatel where should I send my request to enable swap in kernel ???
