Bug in hdparm 0.29 (Slackware-Current)


Hi

I upgraded from 13.1 to Current today, and now when I run:
Code:
# hdparm -B 254 /dev/sda
I get this error:
Code:
HDIO_DRV_CMD failed: input/output error
I don't know if this error message is serious or not, but upgrading hdparm to version 9.33 seems to fix it.

edit:
found this http://sourceforge.net/tracker/index...32&atid=736682

The SSDs pretend to be IDE HDDs but doesn't support all the features of most HDD (in this case power management).I think this is normal and wont effect anything.

Thanks, but it's not an SSD.
Also, I don't see this error if I downgrade to the hdparm from Slackware 13.1 or upgrade to the latest version.

Thanks for posting piratesmack. I'm not hitting the problem right now, but I don't like having known issues lurking so I think I'll upgrade that package too.

Hmm weird.
Slackware64 got 9.33, but Slackware got 9.32.

The bug seems to be fixed in both, though.
