Thanks for this, I’m quite new to linux and was not aware of this.
Was able to verify that TRIM is taking place on my system regularly.
Thank you also for this.
I came across this post - Firmware update Samsung SSD in Linux - Intermittent Technology
I’m still finding my way around the command line, would this be a good guide to follow? He mentioned he was on Ubuntu, so unsure whether all the commands shown would also work for Fedora. The 970 firmware is listed in the page he linked to so that’s a small win.
Has anyone else successfully updated their Samsung SSD firmware on Fedora? Would appreciate any guidance and advice on this.
I don’t have samsung, but as a general note. – Unless the firmware is causing problems (which may be possible) it is often better to not make changes on drives. For me the principle is usually “if it ain’t broke don’t fix it” and KISS.
Doing firmware updates have a potential to totally break things if something unexpected occurs.
I’m with you on this, I saw that Samsung SSDs have been having issues and that firmware updates were recommended. I have not experienced any read/write speed loss yet so I’m good for now. Kinda surprised at the apparent lack of manufacturer support from Samsung tbh.
