Swap - Random

To create a swap partition after installation, create an empty partition that should have no holes. You can then format this partition with:

sudo mkswap /dev/sdX

Replacing /dex/sdX with your partition. Mount this partition as swap with

sudo swapon -U UUID

Where UUID is that of your /dev/sdX as read from this:

blkid /dev/sdX

Bind your new swap in /etc/fstab by adding this line:

UUID=xxx    none    swap    sw      0   0

If you want to use your swap for hibernating then you need to update the UUID in /etc/initramfs-tools/conf.d/resume with this content RESUME=UUID=xxx. Don’t forget to $ sudo update-initramfs -u
