RE: Make Your Steem Server Last Longer With Memory Compression
For anyone wondering why installing
linux-image-generic works, it's the dependency on the "
linux-image-extra" for your kernel version. The
zram driver is included in that dependency:
$ dpkg -L linux-image-extra-4.4.0-112-generic | grep zram /lib/modules/4.4.0-112-generic/kernel/drivers/block/zram /lib/modules/4.4.0-112-generic/kernel/drivers/block/zram/zram.ko
Without the package, the necessary driver might not be installed.
