Issue with hdd standby (hdparm vs. udev)


Hi,

I have issue described here:
http://www.spinics.net/lists/hotplug/msg01886.html

I have 'Slack Mini Server' distribution, which uses packages from Slackware, and currently I have udev stopped for hd standby to work.

I have following packages installed:
Code:
/var/log/packages/hdparm-9.3-i486-1
/var/log/packages/udev-141-i486-2
If I understood it well, the problem is that udev is updated with new functionality, and the hdparm is not "following" the update. If that is the case, why the hdparm is not upgraded as well.

From Changelogs I've found out that last upgrade was in late 2008:
Code:
Sun Dec  7 01:37:48 CST 2008
a/hdparm-9.3-i486-1.tgz:  Upgraded to hdparm-9.3.
Am I the only one having this issue?

I have posted the problem to linux-hotplug, and they agree that hdparm greater than 0.9.14 fixes the issue:

I did not try that myself, but I believe them
Cheers,

Nobody noticed that it was a problem until after 13.0 released. This is what -current is for, folks -- if it had come across the radar earlier, it would have been a relatively trivial update.

I've got it on the TODO for this -current cycle now.

I knew of this issue before 13.0 was released, unfortunately I didn't know where the exact problem is (my hd, linux or slackware) until now. I'm still learning Linux on the way, so I'm probably not the right person for debugging stuff.

Ok, at least the issue is now known by a developer.

The fact that you found the problem and solution on your own is a good sign :-)
