    I´m having a problem. My system has 4GB of RAM, but the swap if 1GB only and starts to swap, and I want to increase the size of it to 8GB for example.

    How do i change this? Anyone has a tutorial ?

    Thanks

    Go on, have a guess
    You would have to either repartition your disks or add a new disk and create swap space on it. On Linux the swapfile space is a specific type of disk partition.

    swap is recommended to be the double of your physical mem right?

    thanks

    Yes, that's the general recommendation.
