hdparn


I have Fedora Core release 2 installed for a class I am taking and we're trying to use the hdparm command. I type in hdparm -t /dev/hda and I get the following message

bash: hdparm: command not found

help please.

I did try it as root, and still get the same message. Is there a utility package that I need to install or something?

Try
Code:
yum install hdparm
also, Fedora Core 2 is a bit outdated, you may want to think about upgrading.
