    parition alignment of X25-M G2 under Linux

    graysky

      How should one partition an X25-M G2 under Linux?  I have read two different suggestions, both of which suggest using fdisk with a custom head and sector count, but they differ on the actual values.  Both agree that partitions need to be aligned based on the SSD's erase block size.  I believe that the X25-M for example uses an EBS of 512 KiB.

       

      1) fdisk -H 224 -S 56 /dev/sdX

      2) fdisk -H 32 -S 32 /dev/sdX

      Advice is appreciated.
