Re: Solid state drive optimization

It is very strange. When I cat out fstab I get the above. But when I open fstab in gedit I get the following. Notice the first has one extra line. # /etc/fstab: static file system information. # # Use 'blkid' to print the universally unique identifier for a # device; this may be used with UUID= as a...

Re: Solid state drive optimization

That solution seemed to be going well in that it installed and printed a test page. But when I rebooted I got the old usb error from days before and now cannot access my new installation. an error occurred while mounting /proc/bus/usb" I remember another user commented that the problem has to do wit...

Re: Solid state drive optimization

I disable it because it is annoying having to login each time I go for a coffee. Anyway, I have found the fix in screen saver. Thank you for your support and patience. Also thank you to niowluka for the informative article. Hopefully this would make for a stable platform. BTW Pjotr, I see on your si...

Re: Solid state drive optimization

Thanks pjotr, can also comment on suspend? I don't understand why I cannot disable it. As mentioned I have already set power management to never. But it still goes into suspend after ten minutes of inactivity.

Re: Solid state drive optimization

OK, I reinstalled and configured FSTAB accordingly without discard. So far so good. I also disabled hibernate. However, I cannot disable suspend even though I set power management to never suspend when inactive. Never turn off screen when inactive. I only have suspend on when lid is closed. But when...

Re: Solid state drive optimization

Thank you all. I have a bit more confidence to go ahead with that now. I will let you know how I get on.

BTW is it advisable to add my disk drive to FSTAB. My idea is so that when I click on recent files on the menu tab it can remember the files I accessed last time used.

Re: Solid state drive optimization

OK PJOTR, you cannot back your thesis on discard. I am still willing to give your optimization tutorials another try even though I have tried it once before. I re-read it with fresh eyes and I think it is worth another try. Regarding what your say about the nvidia drivers, yes, I have been using 340...

Re: Solid state drive optimization

OK that makes it two people advising I do away with discard. But I still would appreciate if you guys can point me to an authoritative documentation that would back that up. Please do not take this the wrong way, but out of all the reading I have done these past few days your the only two people who...

Re: Solid state drive optimization

Thanks Pjotr, I will try the keyboard fix after reinstalling the OS tomorrow.

Can I assume you now agree with the links I sent, especially the FSTAB discard tutorials including need or lack thereof to mess with scheduler in Mint 17.2?

Discard is indicated in the official Mint tutorials and several others links listed below. If you remember the first time I had problems booting it was right a...

Re: Solid state drive optimization

Hi, since the optimization I am noticing a certain time lag between my keyboard stroke to reach the cursor. It is as if I am running out of memory or CPU is working too hard. Can any one help me with some trouble shooting steps to figure out what could be going on? This symptom happens on client and...

keyboard stroke time lag

Hello, I am not sure whether my problem is software or hardware but since optimizing my new solid state drive some times I experience a time lag between my keyboard strokes to cursor response times. This can happen with a client application such as thunderbird and also cloud based applications. I wo...

Re: Solid state drive optimization

so far so good. The only outstanding thing I am noticing is occasional time lag between keyboard strokes and cursor response. Can anyone think of why this is happening ONLY since the optimization process.?

Re: Solid state drive optimization

Well, I am still using my disk drive with default settings and have experienced no problems. Especially none of that USB error. So my gut feeling is tending towards what Ron-N is suggesting as in FSTAB. Ron-N, if I was to output the FSTAB settings it would be only for the current disk drive and NOT ...

Re: Solid state drive optimization

No I have not looked at the motherboard. If I am correct, you seem to be saying my motherboard is faulty. Fortunately, on this particular laptop (sager NP 9280) there is a separate USB board that slots into the motherboard. In fact, one USB board is on it's way to me right now. So I have to come bac...

Re: Solid state drive optimization

My mint 17.2 crashed again after only two days, with the exact same error message an error occurred while mounting /proc/bus/usb" To be fair, I have two dead USB ports. But cannot see why Mint cannot work with the remaining two working ports. OR why dead ports would destabilize the whole system. I c...
