Sounds like you’re the perfect … um.. guinea pig? ☺ You’ve got years of experience with no swap, now we’ll all be (or at least, I’m) very interested in what you find out.

Subject: Re: To swap or not to swap ;-) (was RE: To lvm or not to lvm)
So interestingly enough I was looking at my swap from this convo, and surprisingly noticed that I'd never added any swap to this system! I built the swap lvm slice, but never added it to the fstab, don't remember if on-purpose or not. This system has 128gb of ram, so not that I notice really, but might explain why I might see some weird lagging at times. I usually blame (crap) compositing...
I suppose I've been using this pc for a couple years now without swap, so it *is* doable (with a lot of ram), but I think I might enable it and see if things are any better with than without swap.
