Hoping to get access to a laptop with a NVMe / M.2 storage subsystem later today. (a Alienware laptop purchased in March or April).
Note NVMe is not sata/scsi based. It's a different data bus.
Does anyone know what device it should create? /dev/sda is for devices under the overarching SCSI driver including those handled by libata. I don't know if NVMe is layered under the SCSI driver or not?
I'll try the latest Tumbleweed boot media with it via attaching an external DVD.
Is this tech known to work with Tumbleweed?
you should get /dev/nvme* devices there - openQA operates on NMVe devices and with recent kernels it starts to behave reasonable.
So the TW 4.6.0 kernel should be fine for this.
