I have returned to an Open Pli 4 image as I always do.


I cannot remember how to format a usb so I can make a swap file.


I have browsed the menus and found nothing.


Can someone point me in the right direction please?


No matter how many other images I try, I always end up coming back to OpenPli.

Shows how good OpenPli images are!

There was a tool called system utilities that (ran under ppanels) and is being reworked/refreshed to work better in OpenPli4 (without ppanels) as we chat here, that had this option in it. I think it was in the feeds, it may still be.


If you know linux, you can format the usb-drive as a swap partition with the mkswap-command.
