I'm looking for some advice on setting up LVM on SSD + HDD. can I setup LVM only on /Home or does it have to be everything? Shoudl I enable TRIM support or not? Debian wiki is short on LVM info.

Not sure on the LVM question, but the answer for enabling TRIM is "NO"!

EDITED/CORRECTED 20150329

Since 2011 Trim has been enabled in the Linux Kernel.  It is however, NOT optimized for whatever reason.  My advice in this 'HowTo' posted at, "How To: SSD + TRIM + Linux

Single drive ZFS on a GPT disk, is by far, faster and more complex than ext3/4. No 2tb limit, no 4 primary partitions crap limit either. Want me to go on?  ;D

ZFS on Linux is still having "child diseases" So be careful  :)
