"Fly swapping or as it should be called, Swap on-the-Fly allows
the addition of swap space as and when needed. This is very handy
if you have just ran out of Memory while trying to do a big compile
or, more often, you mis-configured your swap at installation and
ran out of memory before even X starts."
"Though this process is by no means a solution to the problem
(there are speed implications) it is non the less a nice quick fix,
and I have used this method on many Unix variants."
"Well first we must be root to do this, the we need to use the
command "dd" to create a swap file, this is not too bad."
"Decide how much more swap you need, but dont worry too much
since you can add multiple swap files."
