#StackBounty: #arch-linux #system-installation #manjaro #ssd #nvme Installing Manjaro 18 on HP Spectre NVMe SSD

Bounty: 50

I recently picked up this lovely laptop (HP Spectre X360 13), and want to install Manjaro on it. It has a Toshiba NVMe SSD (KXG50ZNV1T02).

Seeing that this will be my first install of Linux onto an SSD of any sort, I would just like the community’s feedback regarding any special precaution I should be taking when installing to an NVMe drive, to maintain longevity of the drive? TRIM? Discards?

Closest machine I could find info on on the ArchWiki is a similarly-spec’d model, but no special mention of SSD considerations.

I will not be running a dual-boot setup … Manjaro will be used exclusively.

Lastly, is there any special configuration/package needed to get full-speed Thunderbolt 3 support in Linux? Or is this not needed?
