[Bug 445852] Re: SSD stall during boot

I have noticed if I power up the AAO without mains power more often than
not it only freezes on the first part of the boot process and not during
GDM making all the applets fail, which gives me the most stable I've got
Karmic working so far. Fsck seems to want to run every boot now just
before the freeze.  It's enough for me to stick with Karmic unless the
SSD gets trashed like Kory but I'm running EXT4 with journaling still
enabled, perhaps that's why I've not suffered the corruption problem,

I've posted this issue on the Supertalent forum to see if they can
possibly help with maybe a firmware update but I'm not holding my
breath! http://www.supertalent.com/home/forum/viewtopic.php?f=17&t=2083
I agree with you both Johan and Dan - this does seem to be a Linux bug -
one they seemingly can't be arsed to fix at the moment which is very
frustrating.  Maybe when they get enough pissed off users like us
they'll do something about it :o(

I use my card readers a lot, the left hand in particular for data
because I'm dual booting the SSD with Windows 7 so that rules out that
option in my case.
