Again -- fussing with a full (not from a live .iso) 9.7 install; the
Debian GUI installer is suggesting a Swap partition on a Kingston SSD.
#1 Given that it's not great to pound the same area of a SSD with
writes; is it indeed still best practice to go with a swap partition on
a SSD rather than a swap FILE?
(Or is this a legacy spinning hard disk install suggestion?)
#2 How DO you get the installer to go with a Swap FILE?
Just delete that recommended Swap partition during the install?
I looked; but did not run across any best practice docs for Swap on SSD.
