Subject: use swap files on boot up
Date: Mon, 13 Jul 2009 12:03:13 -0400
Package: live-initramfs
Severity: wishlist

Hi,

To many people, Debian-Live base distros are one-time-quick-fix
things, but to me, it is a solution to use my Linux on boxes otherwise
impossible.

More often than not, I'm faced with boxes that have little ram, and
impossible to have the luxury to create a swap partition. So swap
files that can be picked on boot up is most valuable. Since nowadays
Linux utilizes swap files as efficient as swap partition, using
flexible swap files are more encouraged than the fixed swap partition.

Use swap files on boot up is a small fix with huge advantages.

Thanks

the ground work for this is already done, however, i personally prefere
to not add the missing parts in old live-initramfs and do it in
live-initramfs 2.x this fall.

Eventually, live-boot will support additional stuff (it's on our todo
page at http://live.debian.net/devel/live-boot/todo), but since these
are wishlist items open for long time, requireing quite a bit of work to
implement and nobody worked on them for years, I do not see much point
in keeping it rotting in the bts, that's what we have the todo page for
(that includes above things, and much more).
