SUMMARY: Re: Relative speed of swap space - Partition of file

Wanting to increase the swap space on my IPX, I asked for opinions on
the relative merits of using mkfile and swapon to add swap space in
the filesystem and increasing the size of the swap partition.

I got two replies - one said that it didn't make much difference, one
said it did.

For now I've gone through the filesystem, but next time I have a disc
crash I'll repartition.
