50541511 story SSD Failure Temporarily Halts Linux 3.12 Kernel Work 552 Posted by Soulskill on Wednesday September 11, 2013 @02:50PM from the must-be-nvidia's-fault dept. jones_supa writes "The sudden death of a solid-state drive in Linus Torvalds' main workstation has led to the work on the 3.12 Linux kernel being temporarily suspended. Torvalds has not been able to recover anything from the drive. Subsystem maintainers who have outstanding pull requests may need to re-submit their requests in the coming days. If the SSD isn't recoverable he will finish out the Linux 3.12 merge window from a laptop."
