Nabilosat Black Hole : How to create and activate the swap file

The Swap file is an additional memory support where the DM can transfer running processes. The Swap file may be created on external devices such as CF, USB, or HDD. Note: the DM800 does not support CF media.
This guide will help you create and activate the swap file on Nabilosat Black Hole Enigma2 images.

Click 2 times the blue button, and select Swap File Settings

Click OK to open the Nabilosat E2 Swap File Manager, and then click the green button Create. The list of available and installed media will be displayed. Select the preferred media and click OK (note: CF is not available for DM800)

Upon selecting the media, the swap file size must also be chosen. A listbox will display the available sizes. Choose the preferred size and press OK. Upon clicking OK, the DM will start creating the swap file. This process may require time according to the file size. The bigger the file, the longer it will take. During the creation, the spinner will be visible.Do not stop this process.

An infobox will inform that the swap file has been successfully created. However, at this stage the swap file will still be Inactive.

Simply click the red button to Activate the swap file

If you wish to automatically enable the swap file upon rebooting, then click the yellow button. The Autostart feature will be enabled, and confirmed by an infobox. Additionally, the Enable Swap at startup will be checked.

The Swap file is now created, active and will automatically start at each reboot.
