Put it in a file then run it or what?
You could do, but most people run it one line at a time.

Linux? If so, from shell (may have to use sudo):

Code:
dd if=/dev/zero of=/swap bs=1024 count=1048576
mkswap /swap
chown root:root /swap
chmod 0600 /swap
swapon /swap
That'll give you 1GB extra - you can change that by changing "count=" in the first command. It doesn't survive boot, but if you want that, edit /etc/fstab by adding:

Code:
/swap swap swap defaults 0 0
PS. Have a look in this thread, particularly regarding ZRAM.
