3)nvme speeds...i found a linux guide that said u have to activate nvme gen2 to get to full speed do i need to do this in armbian aswell?


4)how do i set a swap fille under armbian?

Since you mention @NicoD may I suggest you look at his other YouTube Videos because he covers installing other desktops , swap files and overclocking on Armbian and MUCH more.

He also has a fantastic video about his famous useful commands, you can download is useful commands and learn those, this would give you a huge boost forward in your learning.

After watching his videos you can post a comment if some things were not clear to you.




This is what I would do if I were you .

IMHO, you will use it for a couple days. Then it will become a dust-collector. Otherwise this would be one of the very last thing to bother.
