Re: Using a 40 gig SSD



* Sandy Harris <sandyinchina@xxxxxxxxxxx> [2010-04-09 21:50 +0800]:
I have acquired a 40 gig solid state disk, wonder how best to use it.

Context is a single-user desktop, Xubuntu on 2666 MHz Core 2
with 4 gigs of RAM. Current setup uses a hard drive with separate
partitions for / /usr and /var with about 1, 7 and 1 gig used
respectively.

What file system should I consider for the SSD? Should I put
only / and /usr there and have the more volatile /var on
rotating storage? Any other advice?

Whatever else you decide to do, consider aligning your partitions with
your SSD's erase blocks.
