Adding SWAP memory
#1
Loading a lot of roms in your system might require some extra memory. Adding swap seems to improve and avoid freezes.

Press F4 to quit EmulationStation and try this from command line (make sure you have at least 1GB of free space)

1. cd RetrOrangePi
2. ./makeswap
wait a minute while swapfile is created
3. sudo nano /etc/rc.local
4. add 'sudo swapon /swapfile' before exit 0
5. press Ctrl-X to quit, Y to save
6. sudo reboot

you should have 512MB extra memory after the reboot.

Good Morning.
Sorry if it's my ignorance.


Here in my ROPi already in the first command I have the return cd RetrOrangePi: no such file or directory ..
I opened a direct thermialis on the desktop, was that right?
