Apart from using Memory what effect would a permanent value of CONF_SWAPSIZE=2048 be. I assume this is the size of the virtual storage? No, its the size of the swap file. The virtual storage is the sum of the swap plus the size of the main (RAM) memory. Where is the defined..?...... Apart from usin...

It's filesystem space.

Don't change it unless your rootfs is on USB stick, hard drive or SSD.
OK, but booting to an USB HDD at the moment has not yet been released. I have read of other alternatives, but I will
wait for the official RPI.org release.

Does anyone know of a reliable cooling fan for the RPi4 - and one that allows a HAT to be used?.
SEEED offer a rather magnificently large cool tower but something smaller is required.
