You don't strictly need to do anything special. You may want to read the
advice here anyway:


I strongly recommend against disabling the journal, though.

Yes, including TRIM support.

None that I know of. Everything is supposed to "just work" (including
block size issues).

I am using an Intel X25m (1st generation) for almost two years now and
apart from a few tmpfs and no swap, I haven't done anything special in
order to optimize its usage. My model lacks TRIM support, though, and I
think I can notice the performance penalty.

I'm being paid to act weirdly.
