    well, i asked in a couple of places but nobody answered so i just tried making compcache work by myself. what i did was:
    - use recovery to format external sd fat32+swap
    - use galaxoconf to activate compcache setting it on default which is 25600 i think.

    now the thing is - how do i know if it works and did i even do it right?

    sorry if there already was a topic about this, i guess i havent found it if there is. i also tried using google and found nothing...

    oh, and to check that compcache is disabled, check output of 'lsmod'. there shouldn't be ramzswap module listed.

    thanks, i didnt mean to look like i wasnt looking hard enough i guess i didnt see these pages tbh or maybe just didnt see whats in them...
    anyway thanks a lot.

    btw, are there any optimal compcache values or anything goes?

    kresten - i have both compcache and swap enabled...according to those topics its compcache first swap second for compressed apps..or something like that :p so i guess it works fine now..

    CCCP20 - read the two topics youll see...

    You have to figure it out by yourself.

    There is no optimal setting. I use 64mb swap and 8mb compcache in combination with pretty aggressiv ram settings. Works fine for me, but everyone use his phone different.

    well, i put the default values for swap (32mb) and the default values for compcache (25600 - this is in bytes or what? Oo) and for now it works fine i guess...music player and web pages are popping up instantly and the ram itself doesnt seem to be affected much...also when i use 'free' command i get that my swap is beeing used...does that make sense? i thought that apps get stored on compcache first swap second so its kinda weird...or maybe im just stupid :)

    as infect states, its in the threads

    compcache will use swap if it detects a swap partition on external media
