"* Mounting local filesystems ... " doesn't wait for mkfs.ext4 to finish, thus zram will fail to mount at boot time.

rc_need="udev-settle" is required in /etc/conf.d/localmount when using mkfs.ext4 in /etc/udev/rules.d/10-zram.rules otherwise, mkfs.ext4 is still running when /etc/init.d/localmount is running (even with rc_parallel="NO" in /etc/rc.conf) and thus the mount with fail with mount: /tmp: /dev/zram1 already mounted or mount point busy. --Gentoo eshoes (talk) 23:05, 13 April 2020 (UTC)
