I just installed slackware 2.02 and everything works fine except X. Perhaps it's
just me but I feel that X is now slower than before.
I believe that the difference in speed is because I now use a swap file on my
linux native partition (16mb) and the swapon command, instead of my old linux swap
The question is:
Is there a performance difference between the two methods of swapping ?
Will I increase the performance of swapping if I switch back to a swap partition
instead of the swap file I am using now?
PS> I have a 486 dx2 with 8mb ram..
