Linux on SSD

A favourite technique for improving performance on Netbooks like the Eee PC, is tweaking the use of Solid state Drives & making more applications run from RAM instead of writing to the drive.



On the Tombuntu site there are 4 optimization tweaks to speedup your SSD:

  • Mount volumes using the noatime option.
  • Setting up a RAMDisk.
  • Move the cache from Firefox into RAM.
  • Set the I/O scheduler.

These tips also improve the lifespan of Solid State Disks.

Head over here for the complete instruction on how to enable these tweaks.
