#10510 closed defect (fixed)

hd-idle deamon fails to start - hd spin down not working

Reported by: anonymous Owned by: developers
Priority: normal Milestone: Barrier Breaker 14.07
Component: packages Version: Trunk
Keywords: hd idle Cc:


the daemon just won't start, no errors. hd-idle is not in the processes list.

changing the init script /etc/init.d/hd-idle.init as follow fixes the problem:

line 70 from:

service_start /usr/bin/hd-idle -i "$(compute_seconds $interval $unit)" $args


service_start /usr/bin/hd-idle -i "$(compute_seconds $interval $unit) $args"

  • Resolution set to fixed
  • Status changed from new to closed

The proposed patch does not fix the issue but forces hd-idle into daemon mode by invalidating all calculated parameters. The param handling never worked correctly. Fixed with r30722.
