OK. So I just installed a new SSD into my laptop and put a fresh copy of Ubuntu 12.04 onto the drive. The OS install took about 45 minutes longer than it ever did with my HDD. Whenever I go to update software and do the regular updates they take FOREVER. Every update package seems to lag on "Unpacking Replacement". I have already been through all of the threads and tried optimizing my drive for SSD to no avail. The system itself is noticeably faster, it just slows way down when I begin updating or installing new software. Any ideas?
Here is my system info:
Ubuntu 12.04 64-bit Samsung R540 Laptop intel i3 Processor 8GB PC3-10600 Intel® Core™ i3 CPU M 380 @ 2.53GHz × 4 60GB Corsair SSD Drive CSSD-V60GB2
