Stretch on Thinkpad T60 with SSD crashes [solved]

Postby IlikeBörek » 2017-09-29 21:01

Hi there,

I just installed Debian Stretch (Kernel 4.12.0-0.bpo.1-amd64) on my old Thinkpad T60 with an OCZ Octane SSD. Unfortunately after reboot, if started to behave strange: The system froze on nine out of ten tries to boot it. When it booted successfully, the SSD went to Read-Only after heavy load.

After I added
Code: Select all
libata.force=noncq

to the kernel command-line it worked.
I can't recall where I found this hint, so I thought posting it here would be good in case there are others out there with that problem.

Was it also crashing with the normal 4.9 kernel?
The MX Linux repositories: Backports galore! If we don't have something, just ask and we'll try--we like challenges. New packages: AzPainter 2.1.0, Pale Moon 27.5.0, Liquorix kernel 4.12-10, mpv 0.27.0, Kodi 17.3, 0ad 0.0.22, Mesa 13.0.6

in other words: why do you need the newest backported kernel on a piece of pretty old hardware?
answer: you don't. it isn't even a good idea.
