Hey! Thank you for your response, but i’m not really comfortable with linux and i don’t think that i’m able to do that just by myself.

You are welcome, if you are looking to learn how to config you can use that guide, YouTube and join a dev community for support. Also some guys here would most likely help.

Maybe it will help you or someone else, I use this repo to setup zram swap on ClearLinux. It works fine since as said above, it is kernel-level feature and not that really disto dependent.

The instructions in the repo work as is, just make sure you have git locally with swupd bundle-add git and after the service is run, check the swaps with cat /proc/swaps
