Hello, I have a powermac running 12.04, and I read somewhere that there are patches for the kernal that add TRIM support. Can I get this for my machine, or is this an Intel only thing?

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.
Hello all,after a HDD failure a week ago forced me into replacing it + reinstalling my OS, I went for an SSD and also took the opportunity to migrate from Windows (Vista) to Linux (CrunchBang). Very happy with my decision so far!

CompuLab unveiled two hard disk drive-equipped versions of its tiny, Linux-based, Nvidia Tegra 2 powered computer, a discounted price on its Trim-Slice Pro Dev-Kit, plus Trim-Slice support from Arch Linux and MeeGo's Smart TV group. The $319 Trim-Slice H250 includes a 250GB drive, while the $279 Trim-Slice H Diskless lets users add a disk of their own, says the company....
I am setting up a notebook for software demo purpose. The machine has a Intel Core i7 CPU, 8GB RAM, a 128GB SSD, and runs Ubuntu 12.04 LTS 64bit desktop. As it is, the SSD is configured to have a single volume group, with /boot, /swap, and / all in their respective logical volumes. They collectively consume 30GB space.
