#2481 closed enhancement (fixed)

sdparm package - control spin down/up of external disks

Reported by: netprince (at) vt (dot) edu Owned by: developers
Priority: normal Milestone: Barrier Breaker 14.07
Component: packages Version:
Keywords: Cc:


I just bought a seagate external disk, which by default would spin down after 15 minutes. This completely screwed up the page file, and would cause things to go missing from the mounted fs. (nevermind causing problems with the fs)

I found this sdparm utility and it works well to adjust the settings on the external disk. This patch will add it to the package system, as well as making the scsi-generic module available in the kernel-modules section.
