there are a lot of blog posts about how to configure Ubuntu when using an SSD. The ones I found rely on editing /etc/fstab. Unfortunately my file looks different from their samples which is why I'm unsure how to proceed. This is my setup:

T430 Laptop; Ubuntu 12.04 LTS; Ubuntu is installed on an SSD located in my Ultra-bay slot. There is a Windows installation on my main HDD.

This is the content of fstab:

# UNCONFIGURED FSTAB FOR BASE SYSTEM
/host/ubuntu/disks/swap.disk    none    swap    sw  0   0

Nothing in /etc/fstab.d/:

ll /etc/fstab.d
drwxr-xr-x 2   root root 1024 Mar 30 2012 ./
drwxr-xr-x 144 root root 9216 Apr 3 10:15 ../

According to Site 1 or Site 2 I should be able to see a list of all disk there and then add some flags for my SSD but all I see are the two lines above.

Any idea how I should proceed? Thanks a lot.

Some fstab settings are placed in /etc/fstab.d/ folder, you may check? –  Sneetsher Apr 3 at 0:51
