RE: Make Your Steem Server Last Longer With Memory Compression
Seriously awesome work on this post, thanks for putting it together. This inspired me to play around with zram and I had a LOT of trouble so I wanted to share my solution in case anyone else has issues.
It installed without issue on Ubuntu 16.04 but simply wouldn't start, responding with the less than helpful
