dphys-swapfile 20100506-3 source package in Ubuntu


dphys-swapfile (20100506-3) unstable; urgency=medium

  * Add versioned dependency on lsb-base for using /lib/lsb/init-functions
    in the init script.
  * Add patch to first call chmod, then mkswap. This avoids a mkswap
    warning about insecure permissions, suggesting the permissions the
    file will be set to anyways afterwards.
  * Add patch by basti to use fallocate if available to create the swap
    file much faster than with dd.

dphys-swapfile: Autogenerate and use a swap file

 This init.d script exists so one does not need to have a fixed size
 swap partition. Instead install without swap partition and then run this,
 with file size (re-)computed automatically to fit the current RAM size.
 By default (and hence on installation) it creates swapfile twice as
 big as the present RAM amount with an upper limit of 2 GB.
 It's also very helpful when included in SD card, USB stick or disk
 images which are distributed and run on many machines with different
 amount of RAM, e.g. different models of the Raspberry Pi or cloud
