Suspend-to-disk and sharing especially swap

Talk status
This discussion is still ongoing.

Some of the assumptions in this article are not true if the user uses suspend-to-disk (hibernate). Because if the user instead of resuming the suspended operating system decides to boot the other system, some problems may arise:

  • Partitions which were/are going to be mounted read-write may become corrupted (so share /boot only if usually not mounted / mounted read-only)
  • The swap partition will still be in use (for the suspend image)

Should this be noted in the article? — Preceding unsigned comment added by Chithanh (talkcontribs) 07:45, March 30, 2015
