comment OOM killer not working?
@skerit This I don't really know, but it was set to 0 in the kernels I used back in 2010 (Debian, Liquorix and GRML).

It's clear from his question that he may write an improper script that eats more than it should (and I have already done this myself). In a situation like this, you can watch the script grabbing gigabytes of RAM in a few seconds, and zRAM won't come to the rescue, since the script will never be satisfied enough.

In theory, zRAM is a nice thing, but it is CPU hungry, and generally not worth the cost. Memory is generally way cheaper than electricity. And, on a laptop, where upgrading the RAM is more expensive, CPU usage is mostly undesirable.

I wasn't the one who downvoted you, but generally, lowering vm.swappiness does more harm than good, even more on systems suffering from low memory issues.

@Salem please try echo 1 | sudo tee /proc/sys/vm/oom_kill_allocating_task without a mounted swap. It will be undone after a reboot.
