I installed a new SSD, but I've read some places that you should enable trim and some that you shouldn't.
I have a Kingston SSDNow 300 120 gb drive and from what I can understand, it's simply plug and play and the sandforce controller should take care of everything. But I'm not sure and articles online aren't too clear. Can anyone clear the air just a bit for me?
If someone gets an SSD that has TRIM support in the firmware and loads Fedora 12, does the
I/O layer have support for TRIM yet? Or is it something where you need to add a flag to the kernel at boot time?
Does Suse have any software based TRIM support available or that is in the works?
I know there is to a degree new firmware becoming available that supports TRIM (although some are pretty rudimentary) but windows 7 does a fairly good job software side and upgrading the firmware occasionally involves the unbridled joy that is wiping the drive and starting again.

All you have to do really is open up /etc/fstab and add the "discard" option to the partition you're trying to enable TRIM on.Also, here is a random question for you.I've messed up my Tint2 config file pretty bad with experimentation, how would I go about resetting it?
