Swap disk - Force the kernel to use more RAM



This is a problem I have almost solved in antiX Openbox alpha1 by configuring zram, but it is only a turn around. Here is a good article on the Archlinux wiki about how to configure swappiness:

--- Citer ---The swappiness represent how much the kernel prefers swap to RAM.  Setting it to a very low value, meaning the kernel will almost always  use RAM, is known to improve responsiveness on many systems. To do that,  simply add those lines to /etc/sysctl.conf:
--- Code: ---vm.swappiness=20

--- Fin du code ---

To test and more on why this may work, take a look at this article.
