I just got a recent Dell XPS 13 laptop. I'd like to install a Linux distro, but I have a requirement that I need hibernate to work. I've read that I need the swap partition to be at least 2x the size of the amount of RAM (so >16GB). I find the UI for configuring the partitions in the installer quite confusing. Any help?

The installer is not giving me an option to change the partition sizes. 1GB is not enough for swap.

No way to edit the partition table either.

And if I boot straight into the installer, it crashes on the partitioning even if I leave it alone.
