First of all I need to mention that my Pi is running off a mechanical HDD, not an SD card. So from this it is understandable that a larger swap file would be beneficial when the internal ram fills up.
The existing 100MB swap file at /var/swap is doing a good job, but I am in need of a bit more. Perhaps a Gig or two.
Does anyone have a few words on how I can go about doing this without causing to much trouble on the system?
