BigSwap causes grumble


howdy BB - excellent tool, folks

BB report/log grumbled:
After fresh install today of Mint 18 'Sarah' Mate, vintage 2016-07
on system w/8g dRAM (minus IGP@128mB)
Followed old guideline, and partitioned
to be sized 2x phys.ram = 16gB (16,384mB)

Is BB only a 13-bit app ?
Ha. Ha ha. Ha.


A positive attitude _is_, however

Thanks, all

I fixed this on July 20, 2016, but there has not been a public release yet. You can either uncheck the memory cleaner option, or edit Change the 8 * 1024 ** 3 to a large value, similar to this patch.

It would probably also work if you had two 8 GB swap files.
