I never suggested you move on, wrong guy. You say you have run Debian for years and don't have any trouble installing it, yet you don't know how to set up the swap partition? I suppose some folks are so advanced that the really simple beginner stuff confounds them... :?

Anyway, good luck in your quest.

You're getting me mixed up with somebody else. Where did I ever write that I don't know how to set up the swap partition? Make sure you know what you're talking about before you hit that "Submit" button. I'm not on any quest.

Good point, I can totally go along with that.

You're right, I got you and the OP intertwined somehow on the partition thing. Apologies.

Then you should submit a bug report and make yourself actually useful instead of coming here and irritating us with your moronic moaning.
