Minimum Alpine partition sheme

This section mentions that swap partition is needed... Is this true for the current alpine setup scripts? Can alpine be setup without swap? Or perhaps with a swap file instead? If the setup script allows no swap or swap file, the statement about swap partitions being mandatory should be removed. zcrayfish (talk) 01:30, 9 December 2021 (UTC)

My comments on this:

  • If you run setup-disk with the SWAP_SIZE environment variable set to 0 (i.e. SWAP_SIZE=0 setup-disk), then the script won't create any swap.
  • As far as I can tell, a swap partition isn't mandatory (for example I've set up a VM that uses the entire disk without partitioning, the VM software handles loading the kernel so there's no bootloader either).
  • Also, it should be scheme instead of sheme (missing the 'c')
