I don't want to use ZRAM, but the 'zram-generator' package is listed as a hard dependency for the 'garuda-common-settings' package, and if I uninstall 'zram-generator' it also uninstalls a bunch of other Garuda customizations. I can override this temporarily by running 'pacman -Rdd zram-generator' to remove it without performing any dependency checks, but 'zram-generator' gets reinstalled automatically the next time I install updates so it's not a permanent solution.
It is possible that setting 'zram-generator' as a hard dependency for 'garuda-common-settings' was an ideological decision -- I've noticed people tend to be vehemently pro-ZRAM or anti-ZRAM -- but this dependency is factually incorrect, because Garuda runs just fine without ZRAM, just like any other desktop Linux distro with ZRAM installed by default (Fedora comes to mind). Please remove this dependency so people who don't want to use ZRAM don't have to uninstall it after every update cycle.
