NVME SSD Samsung 960 EVO Works!
#1
Just wanted to report that I've recently installed the Samsung 960 EVO 500GB MZ-V6E500 2280. Running Manjaro ARM as primary drive. I wasn't sure it would work since the wiki shows the 970s don't work. I haven't noticed any heat from the drive but then I haven't done any particularly large read/writes. Seems stable thus far. Been using it about a week at this point.

What tests should I run before updating the wiki to note this thing is good to go?

Is there any other information anyone else would like about this?

Is there a standard for testing or verifying drives before we add them to the wiki? Perhaps I missed this somewhere if it already exists. Maybe worth noting at the top of the page or linking to those type of instructions here if/when they exist. https://wiki.pine64.org/index.php/Pinebo...patibility

sweet.

useful info:
drive power reported information
power usage
battery impact
anything not working, like suspend
any configurations you have made

I'm not a linux noob per say but I've not worked with power or battery stuff within linux much. Only recently started using Linux on my personal laptops. Are there specific commands to run for each of these items?

This feeds in to my secondary questions about building a sort of testing suite(list of items and commands) for this testing so others who might give this a go can just use those and provide this information up front and in a uniform way.

Thanks for clarifying your request with needed commands so I can capture this info and then we can put together a testing doc of sorts.
