RFE: autopartitioned swap should be near start of disk.
Last modified: 2007-04-18 12:38:47 EDT
Disk Druid's autopartitioning places swap at the end of the drive. Shouldn't swap
be near the fastest part of the disk? FreeBSD's sysinstall seems to think so, and
IIRC much earlier versions of RHL did too.
The algorithm hasn't changed at all from earlier versions of Red Hat Linux, and
with modern disks, I really don't know that there's enough of a difference to be
katzj, do we want to implement this or close it? Like you said, I don't think
that there would be a noticeable difference.
Maybe at some point in the future... not worth the pain in changing the
algorithm at present, though.
