[maemo-users] [maemo-users] Enhanced Load-Plugin applet with swapon/off (load-plugin-aw_0.2.7-1)

I have added a swapon/off menu-item to Jakub's Load-Plugin,


which he recently released under the LGPL.

The swapon/off feature will be useful for those who have a swap on the 
RS-MMC. (You really should swapoff before you unplug the RS-MMS...)
Here are some screenshots of the enhanced Load-Plugin applet:


The enhanced Load-Plugin applet can be downloaded here:


Source code and patches to transform Jakub's original source into the 
enhanced version are available, too. 

The Load-Plugin runs as 'user', swapon and swapoff need 'root',
thus you have to add the following line to /etc/sudoers manually:
user ALL = NOPASSWD: /sbin/swapon *, /sbin/swapoff *

The Load-Plugin does not create a swap file or device, you must 
already have done that, as described elsewhere.

Please remember, this modified Load-Plugin applet has only 
been tested by a few and could ruin your device. Be careful.

Do you think the Load-Plugin applet with swapon/off is 
end-user-ready and should now be linked to from the 
Maemo ApplicationCatalog Wiki?
