Error uninstalling ZRAM

On my RASPBERRY I am using ZRAM.
After some time I decided to stop using ZRAM, and selected in the OPENHABIAN-CONFIG–>30 System Settings–>Uninstall ZRAM
I received the following error message:

A not supported option was selected (probably a programming error): " | Uninstall ZRAM"
ZRAM uninstall error messages

How can I stop using ZRAM ?

I dug into openhabian-config and noticed that the uninstall for zram can be done manual using the following:

service zram-config stop
systemctl disable zram-config
rm /etc/systemd/system/zram-config.service
rm /usr/local/bin/zram-config
rm /etc/ztab
rm /etc/logrotate.d/zram-config

echo "zram-config is uninstalled, removing the uninstaller in progress"
rm -rf /usr/local/share/zram-config
rm -rf /usr/local/lib/zram-config
echo "##### Reboot isn't needed #####"

Running as root (sudo) :slight_smile:

Probably the call between the menu and the script is …out-of-sync.

Right, a patch is on it’s way.
Any particular reason to uninstall ZRAM?

The reason for me to stop using ZRAM is the fact that the usage can cause corruption.
But after reading the article, you pointed me to, I see that only logging is managed in RAM, so no real data is affected when an inproper shutdown should occur. Also database corruption, as I am using InfluxDB, is not a danger.
As I have a dedicated raspberry 4B with 4GB of RAM, the usage of ZRAM could be reconsidered.
Thanks for clearifying the ZRAM feature to me.
