This version fixes handling of mount paths that needs escaping, and enables "discard" for mounts of zram devices to release unused memory.

When only used for swap devices (99% of installations), it has no significant changes.

How to install

sudo dnf upgrade --advisory=FEDORA-2021-82a48ba538

No zram swap after update. Default config and always was.

@atim: are you sure that you had the -3 version? The earlier one was busted, but this one should be fine.

No swap after upgrading to version 1.0.1-3.fc35 ... downgrading to version 0.3.2-5.fc35 brings swap back.

@clnetbox: are you sure that you are using -3 version? Your log shows the error that was fixed in that version.

User Icon clnetbox commented & provided feedback 3 months ago

@zbyszek Yes, I am sure - I installed version 1.0.1-3.fc35 by running sudo dnf upgrade --enablerepo=updates-testing

User Icon zbyszek commented & provided feedback 3 months ago

This update is still in the state pending, so it is not available through updates-testing repo. You would have to download it directly from koji to install.

@zbyszek Sorry, my bad ... you are right ! I downloaded version 1.0.1-3 and rebooted - now it works. Thank you :)

Indeed, -1 build is broken, but -3 works.
