Ive been working with seting up a linux image to be used on the computers at my work. Its based off Fedora 13 and uses the 18.104.22.168-112 kernel.
The PC's will use SSDs, currently I'm developing with a Intel X-25E 64GB SSD, Firmware version 8850.
I have been trying to test the TRIM feature that is included in this kernel. To do this I have followed the instructions I found here: http://forums.gentoo.org/viewtopic-t...b1eef7eb11b70f
Essentially I create a tempfile on the drive, read the memory location, delete the file and check the memory location again. The file has not been deleted from the SSD, If I am correct this means the TRIM feature is not functioning correctly.
My Fstab has the drive set up for discard.
Is there something I am missing in order to get TRIM working properly or am I misunderstanding the test. If you need any other information I'd gladly provide it.
