Since there is a lull in MIUI releases, I thought I would jump over to CM7 nightlies to see what its like to run gingerbread. I had never gotten around to setting up an apps2sd partition, but have been getting space warnings, so decided to go ahead. Since this is a convenient time to also set up a swap partition, I thought I might do that as well.
1. As explained here, I understand compcache is virtual swap in RAM itself. This would seem to suggest it is pointless to use swap and compcache simultainiously - yes?
2. Assuming the answer to 1. is yes, which is better? Seems like setting aside RAM for compcache is a little counterproductive if I am hoping to speed up my device. At the same time I hear swap will speed up wear on the SD card.
3. Assuming the answer to 2. is that swap is preferable, what is the maximum helpful swap size? I see a lot of recommendations for 32 MB, but considering I am not maxing out my SD card as it is, doubling or quadrupling this is feasable - would it help?
