Reducing SSD wear in Acer Aspire One - Linux (Part2)

If you read the last post about: Reducing SSD wear in Acer Aspire One - Linux on this blog here are some more tricks:

disable the sreadahead service (accelerate the boot process)

sudo vim /etc/init/sreadahead.conf
The sreadahead tool helps to speed up the boot process with conventional hard disks, but it actually slows the boot with SSDs.
and comment the following line:

exec /sbin/sreadahead -t 0

* edit the fstab file

sudo vim /etc/fstab

and add the following option to the SSD card noatime

/dev/sda1 / ext4 noatime,errors=remount-ro 0 1

Nice hint about the sreadahead, I wasn't aware of that one and have just implemented it on my AAO, I think it shaved a little time off but I'm not really sure without more testing.
