    Lightbulb Linux Swap Partition

    hi guys,

    i was wondering, does anyone know. if i am installing more than one Linux distro, do i need a swap partition for each distro? or do i need only one swap partition, and will this be accessible by all distros?


    thanks in advance,

    Yes, you can share a Linux swap partition.

    I have also heard of people sharing with Windows, but I have never tried that myself.
