I have it up and running for some weeks now, I took the most simple approach possible described here: just create one partition on the SSD (I still have Grub on my HD) using
sudo fdisk -H 32 -S 32 /dev/sdg (choose first cylinder as 2, end cylinder as the default one)
sudo mke2fs -t ext4 -E stripe-width=128 /dev/sdg1
when booting Kubuntu 10.10 from installation CD, then install from there.
No need to do any aligning calculations whatsoever. I even have
/var on the SSD. There is quite some write activity in those directories, but then SSDs get cheaper and cheaper …
All that is left to do after installation is:
sudo apt-get install sysfsutils
sudo nano /etc/sysfs.conf
- add the line
block/sdf/queue/scheduler = noopat the end
sudo nano /etc/fstab
- change the options for
System performing abolutely great now!
