I’ve just got a new Samsung 960 EVO NVMe SSD for my Dell XPS 13 and want to install Leap 42.3 onto it. This is my first SSD and wondered if I there are any specific choices I need to make with regards to installing Leap to the SSD to optimise and preserve the SDD.
I did some research on the web but most articles are very dated so I’m not sure they are relevant anymore. This particular article lists a few things to change but again it’s old (https://sites.google.com/site/easylinuxtipsproject/ssd-in-opensuse). So does the installer figure everything out and make the right choices for the SSD or do I need to change the default configuration?
I read Btrfs should be avoided due to the high write frequency for the snapshots. Leap selects Btrfs for the root partition by default.
Do I need to add or make any tweaks with regards to TRIM?
Do I need to reduce the swapiness?
