Came from Windows 2 days ago. Using KDE. and its stable as rock but have a few questions.
1-I am using ssd (os installed here) +HDD and my swap file 8 gb… can i move this swap file to USB flash drive ? and should i use zram
2-As i said system has HDD which was formatted ntfs, i can see my files and explore the disk. How can i delete all files and format it to ext4
Ryzen 3 1200@ 3.5 ghz + 8 GB DDR 4 + RX 560
Not 100% certain manjaro is going the same way but arch is dropping systemd swap file and replacing it with zram.
So personally I’d be looking at zram
More precisely this
and supports custom locations …
You install it with:
sudo pacman -S zram-generator
Open KDE Partition Manager and proceed to reformat your HDD … Make sure you do have your files elsewhere in case you need them.
Once converted, take ownership of the partition.
It says some error happened. When i try to format to ext4… should i do this ownership thing before format?
You can’t take ownership on NTFS file system from Linux … make a new partition table (GUID/GPT or MBR), apply, create a partition, apply …
