zram - disable, stop, remove

As the title says, how to remove or disable zram. Thank you


systemctl disable zramswap.service


But, if you want to use the zRam devices, how do you plan to initialise and configure them?

  • By using the Kernel’s sysfs services?
  • By using the systemd zramctl utility?

If only the first choice, you do not need to install the “zramcfg”, “zram-generator” and “systemd-zram-service” packages.

  • If those packages have been pulled in by dependencies of the “libudisks2-0_zram” package then, you can deinstall/remove them but, you’ll have to black-list them to prevent them being reinstalled when the zRam UDisks package is patched or updated …
