Is ZRAM supported in Lubuntu?
sudo apt-get install zram-config
install it? Or is there another way?

Hi, I saw this post on webupd8 and thought I'd give it chance: Increased performance in linux with zram. I downloaded the deb but here's the thing:it requires I remove live-config, live-config-sysvinit, live-initramfs and sysvinit. Also install libnih-dbus1, libnih1 & upstart. Here's my question:Is this a good idea?
I use Lubuntu 13.10 32 bits in a Pentium IV computer with 2 GB DDR Ram, an ATI graphic card and an ATA hard disk. This flavour of Ubuntu uses zRAM to improve its performance and I was wondering if moving termporary files (/tmp/) to RAM (tmpfs) will make an additional improvement.
this is a stock a87 boot.img which has swap disabled which is also known as zram
disabling the zam does not add up 51mb to main memory(need help regarding this)
zram also boosts the performance because its a part of mian memory
default value for zram is 60 means system will only swap if more memory needed by the system ,if we set this value to 100 then applications which are not active
As explained before, "zRAM has been around for a while now and formerly known as Compcache. The kernel module tries to increase system performance by avoiding paging to disk and instead using a compressed block device in RAM with around a 3:1 compression ratio.
Hi,I have Linux 3.10.18-1-CHAKRA #1 SMP PREEMPT x86_64, freschly isntalled from ISO of Chakra 2013.09.Than simply installed apps/zramswap.After restart I get this from systemctl status zram:zram.service - Enable compressed swap in memory using zram
Loaded: loaded (/usr/lib/systemd/system/zram.service; enabled)

While zRAM has been part of the Linux kernel's staging area for a while now and this RAM-based compressed block device is used by Chrome OS and Android, it's struggling to get promoted to the main area of the kernel...
