If this is only a matter of testing the installer, once you are on the desktop you can
stop zram.

In the console, "sudo service zram-config stop", then check the swaps:

$ cat /proc/swaps

$ sudo swapoff /dev/zram0 

or both /dev/zram0 and /dev/zram1 if you have several (depending on how many processors

Then you can retry the installer and see if it helps (it works) or if it is unrelated (it
still doesn't work).

Keep checking the /var/crash directory for files.
