Let’s suppose I want to add some swap space to my Ubuntu Core device. Don’t tell me not to please
I make a file as
/writable/swapfile (is this location okay?)
mkswap /writable/swapfile and after
swapon /writable/swapfile I now have swap and all is good.
To make the change permanent I would normally ninja a line in
/etc/fstab to ensure my swap file is added on boot. However the
/etc/fstab on core has a big warning:-
# Auto-generated by /init # DO NOT EDIT THIS FILE BY HAND - YOUR CHANGES WILL BE OVERWRITTEN # (See writable-paths(5) for details)
Ah, okay. Well, it says I need to “See writable-paths(5) for details”, so lets do that.
popey@localhost:~$ man writable-paths.5 man: command not found
- How do I maintain
- How do I read man pages without man?
