Talk:Ubuntu Precise On OLPC XO

Jump to: navigation, search

I used the full installer, and had a couple things that conflicted with the guide:

  • It wouldn't let me install to a disk smaller than 4.5GB, despite this guide saying 4GB will work.
  • Every time I tried to install with no swap partition the install would crash. I ended up using a swap partition, but after install running:
    sudo echo "vm.swappiness=0" >> /etc/sysctl.conf
    to set swappiness to the lowest value.
