Hi Pete, what if this "Intel Optane problem" is not Qubes specific and
it's just this SSD (?) is faulty. Do you have any warranty left to RMA
and try a different Optane, or even better - take a completely
different SSD to avoid supporting Intel corporation with your money,
funding the next generation of ME-like backdoors.

I'm assuming this is now a Qubes issue.
> My Intel Optane 900p NVME drive does not work reliably with Qubes 4. It initially
appears fine but anywhere between 4-12 hours after boot the system will panic and switch
to a read-only file system - you can't run any commands without an "Input/Output
Error" even in Dom 0. The only course of action when this is encountered appears to
be a hard reset. Unsurprisingly, getting any kind of logs about what is actually happening
has proven fruitless so far :-(

nice and stable. I suspect my best course of action to get a higher performing filesystem
is to move to 4 SATA SSDs in RAID 10. If anyone has any other suggestions to get faster
drive access with this platform (particularly good random read/write performance for using
lots of concurrent VMs in Qubes) or possible approaches to fix my NVME drive issue, they
would be much appreciated.

pwmconfig" in dom0 I get the message "There are no pwm-capable sensor modules
installed". I suspect I need to enable some additional modules, so if anyone can
provide me some explicit directions on how to do this, it would again be much
