swappiness is set 5 because setting it to 0 may be counterproductive. you need to swap. yes you may remove swap partition if you do not need to hibernate. and after going over some articles it is recommended to remove swap partition.

excuse me but why swappiness is set to 5 and not zero? also if i wanna use this package, is it better to just completely remove my swap partition? (because it enables zram)
