Temporarily, you use "swapoff -a" to disable all swap or
"swapoff <device>" to only disable swap on <device>.
To do it permanently or at least to survive a reboot,
you comment out the one or more lines in /etc/fstab that
say something like:
/dev/sda1 swap swap defaults 0 0

I hate to sound ignorant, but what's the best way to turn off swapping
completely? Does it require a kernel recompile?
