zramctl missing
August 25, 2021 03:43PM
Hello all.

I'm trying to set up a zram swap device and although the linux kernel has the zram module installed, I'm not able to find the 'zramctl' console utility. This executable is supposed to be coming on core debian package 'util-linux'.

Any clue how to get it?

Thanks!

Your Debian distribution is too old.

zramctl should be available in Debian stretch and buster. Not sure if it was in jessie.
