How to manually create SWAP file in Enigma 2

Here is short tutorial about creating swap file for your older E2 receiver with small or low memory. I assume you already know how to connect to your receiver using telne or ssh. Lets proceed.

Copy and paste these commands:

… First: …
dd if=/dev/zero of=/media/hdd/swapfile bs=1024 count=524288
… then …
mkswap /media/hdd/swapfile
… then …
swapon /media/hdd/swapfile
… and then …
vi /etc/fstab
… add: …
/media/hdd/swapfile swap swap defaults 0 0

Swap should be created on your hdd. If you want to use USB (better), then just replace hdd with usb. If you get confused with vi text editor, you can just open fstab file using FTP and add required line. Do not forget so save properly.

This should be it. Lets test is now 😉 If you do not want to tinker with these commands, you can also use “Swap manager” plugin if your image has it on feed. With this plugin its very easy to set up swap on usb stick.
