Paging is implemented in MS Windows by paging file
In the player (Linux), you must create a separate partition on the hard disk as Linux Swap.
In practice, the player need swap only to work with torrents
. In other cases, it is almost never used.
1. Create a new folder on the hard disk swap partition in linux swap, connecting it to your computer. You can do this by programs such as Acronis Disk Director, Paragon Partition Manager or any other. Some programs offer several options of format required, unfortunately will have to find out by experience.
Do not create the swap partition is more than double the amount of RAM. (i.e. If you have 128 MB of memory-swap partition must be no more than 256 MB)
2. Select the Web-based module Player Swap on drive
On startup, this module scans sections of the connected devices (drives, Flash drives) and if there is a section marked up as Linux Swap it connects it to a swap system. On shutdown it switches it off respectively. It is not recommended to create a swap partition on the Flash drive! It would only decrease the performance, it can cause lockups and over time will kill the drive.Attention
: do not remove the media with swap while is working! In 90% of cases it will lead to freezing the player! First switch off (you can do by the remote control, if you have PatchedRootApp) and only then remove it.
To view the current size of the Swap, go to Web interface in More-System information
and there under "cat /proc/meminfo" look at the size of the SWAP. If more than 32 k, then your swap is connected.
Well, you can also use Telnet command "free" to see the size of the swap.
