Simple and easy four-step instructions

1. As root user, open or create the file /etc/sysctl.conf .
2. Then modify or add the line:

Code: Select all

vm.swappiness = 10
3. Save the file.
4. Boot the operating system.

The following statement is suitable for temporary changes:

Code: Select all

sudo sysctl vm.swappiness=10

SalixOS does not have the file. I have created it.
Thanks for the answer.
