First, I’m aware that [x]Ubuntu discourages the use of Hibernate, and promotes swap files instead of swap partitions.
But in many professional/work cases, the indefinite storage time of Hibernate is needed.
I’ve set up Hibernate on my my machine (quite involved) using a swap partition. It works perfectly.
But setting up Hibernate never worked using a swap file.
is it even possible to get Hibernate functioning using a swap file?
if yes, how?
or is a swap partition the only way?
I’ve done a writeup of how to do it with a swap partition, but as the upload function here does not work (at least for me), I’ll wait for feedback.
