Phantom Swap Partition in RAM

LM13 MATE

Every time I boot up something is creating a 998 MB swap partition in RAM. I already have a working 4000+ MB swap partition on the hard drive. I have no idea why this ram swap has started being created.

Here's cat /proc/swaps

Code: Select all
Filename            Type      Size   Used   Priority
/dev/zram0                              partition   965612   0   100
/dev/sda3                               partition   4225088   0   -1


Here's my fstab

Code: Select all
# <file system> <mount point>   <type>  <options>       <dump>  <pass>
proc            /proc           proc    nodev,noexec,nosuid 0       0
# / was on /dev/sda5 during installation
UUID=55943dfc-dd8a-423d-8e76-9dbaf674d238 /               ext3    errors=remount-ro 0       1
# swap was on /dev/sda3 during installation
UUID=78f38a3f-e63c-4a30-9de0-cf23ee1adbe8 none            swap    sw              0       0


I have no idea what's creating this ram drive, why it's happening and how I get rid of it. Any ideas?
