I was wondering, what should the size of the swap partition be? I used to make it double the amount of RAM, so when I had 512 MB I made it 1 gig. But now I have 8 gigs of RAM, which would make the swap 16 gigs which seems too big. I've never used a 64-bit version of linux before, so does anyone have any suggestions as to how big the swap should be with 8 gigs of RAM? Also, my OpenSuse system will be on an SSD drive if that matters.
I did a Google search on this first and (surprisingly) didn't really come up with any useful tips.
