Where has zcache gone?

Asked by Ken Sharp on 2013-11-30

I've just installed a Trusty VM and added the kernel option "zcache" but it doesn't do anything.

Checked the config file and zcache isn't even mentioned, although compcache and frontswap are configured.

Had a Google around and couldn't find any mention of zcache being removed from the upstream kernel.

Has the config option simply been misplaced?

Trusty as in Ubuntu 14.04?

Ken Sharp (kennybobs) said : #2

Yes.

I forgot to include this:

$ uname -a
Linux ken-VirtualBox 3.12.0-4-generic #12-Ubuntu SMP Tue Nov 26 22:41:11 UTC 2013 i686 athlon i686 GNU/Linux

Then I suggest you report a bug. Trusty is not stable and not even remotely finished so YES things will be missing. If you need an OS that works then I recommend you install Precise. You can upgrade direct to Trusty when it is ready in April next year.

You are using a prerelease. What did you expect?

I didn't EXPECT anything, I asked a bloody question!!!

Who do you think tests these pre-releases and reports problems???
