I installed zramswap-enabler on Ubuntu 11.10 using the ppa but when installing programs or running system upgrades I get this error:

Setting up zramswap-enabler (0.2.1-0~12~oneiric1) ...
start: Job failed to start
invoke-rc.d: initscript zramswap, action "start" failed.
dpkg: error processing zramswap-enabler (--configure):
 subprocess installed post-installation script returned error exit status 1

                                                              Errors were encountered while processing:
E: Sub-process /usr/bin/dpkg returned an error code (1)

Please let me know how to fix it.

Had the same problem. Just download/install zramswap-enabler_0.2.1-0~13~precise1_all.deb from launchpad, everything seems to be working correctly.
