[Solved...] Zram alternative?

Post#1 by n0ctilucient » 12 Mar 2018, 11:46

Swapspace is a Zram alternative with the advantage over Linux
swapfiles of being able to resize multiple swapfiles on the fly.

Site is @... http://pqxx.org/development/swapspace/
Source is @... http://pqxx.org/download/software/swapspace/

The default swap location is.../var/lib/swapspace... and althought it's reasonable for use in that location
(and you can have more elsewhere) it's best used w/ the ACARD ANS-9010 64gb ramdrive.
see... https://techreport.com/review/16255/aca ... a-ram-disk

It can also compliment Zram use.

If using the ACARD ramdrive it's also best used w/ Btrfs ...
Package is @... http://slakfinder.org/index.php?act=sea ... e=#results

This package has not been adopted yet by ("slackonly" or)...

(as "fullmoonremix") I originally referred to it here...
see... Swap partition alternative...

I have succeed in compiling it w/ src2pkg by deleting the root makefile (that looks for debian???) w/ an archive editor.
:hmmm: I do NOT have the "right" to tell anyone what they should do...
but I reserve the "right" to tell them what they should consider.
