Can the flash memory be used as swap?

Post by dave.rogers » Fri Nov 09, 2018 12:17 am

I'm running the ReSpeaker Core v2 using an OS on the Micro SD, not the OS "flashed" into memory. Some questions:

- Is the flash memory mounted anywhere where I can see its contents?
- Can I configure the flash memory to just be more storage?
- If I do not plan to flash an OS into the flash memory, could it be used as swap memory?

Thanks in advance for any info.
