Find swapspace in Windows pagefiles and swap partitions and use it as tempspace. This script is called upon by virusscan and updatetrk to find more working memory. In normal circumstances your available ram should suffise.
Getswap will remount /dev/shm and make more shared memory available (in e.g. /tmp/) Sometimes you have too little RAM, so a swapdisk is a reasonable alternative to gain memory.
getswap -s <SIZE in % of total memory> -d -f
Sometimes you need a huge amount of tempspace. With this parameter you can specify the size in percentage of the total amount of memory (RAM+swap). Default figure is 50%.
Will fail at even less.
