Standard Swapfile is way to big!

Post by ripa »

Hey,

Dietpi is a lightweigt OS with 17MB RAM footprint. Why the initial boot process with automatic updates writes 2 or more times 1552MB of swapfile on the microsd? Every write is bad for an microsd (and costs TIME). Why not changing it to 32MB? The user can change it easy after updating in the dietpi-config.

(I'm testing much and do a clean install more times a day. Most time i waiting for (senseless) swap writing.
