Full Ubuntu someday would be nice, but for now I would just like to have the ability to have a stable and reliable browser. I am not much of a Linux guru and don't need to run native apps (at least right now). Should I just undo the webtop2sd app and go back and follow the directions to enable the swap space hack?
Thanks, any experienced advice would be appreciated.
First off, I don't know how qualified I really am at answering any questions... but as a computer technician I think I can field this
How many apps do you have on your phone? How many are running in the background eating away at your memory (RAM)? You can use Task Killer to find out and to also kill most unnecessary background running apps. THEN launch webtop. I personally don't have much at all going on on my phone... just a handful of apps and lots of them frozen (bloat). So, my RAM usage is minimal. I should also point out I have never once seen a memory low error in webtop.
To get the swap working you must follow the swap guide to the letter... with Script Manager and downloading the file and placing it somewhere on your sdcard-ext ... And to answer your question, yes, webtop2sd and swap partition are working fluidly together for me. This means I have 3 partitions on my sdcard-ext ... one which is fat32 I believe, for well, storage... second is ext3 for the webtop... third is 'swap' ... you must use a format utility which can format a partition as swap such as the one suggested in the webtop2sd guide
. But I also could recommend the free utility MiniTool Partition Home Edition
... it's a great free one, the one I used for all my partition stuff on my Bionic.
So, if you didn't do all this: Got the UUID of the swap partition, put it in the UUID line in your fstab file, installed script manager on your phone, downloaded the script provided, and set it to run as root and run as boot... then you won't get any results.
