Unhappy trouble configuring hdaps on thinkpad

hi im having trouble trying to get hdaps working on my thinkpad laptop,
i visisted the page:

and i downloaded the latest kernel patch and did:
# cd /usr/src/linux
# patch -p1 < ~/hdaps_protect.20060430.patch

but it gave me some errors while patching;

can't find file to patch at input line 373
Perhaps you used the wrong -p or --strip option?
The text leading up to this was:
|diff -urN linux-2.6.16.original/drivers/scsi/libata-core.c linux-2.6.16.hdaps/drivers/scsi/libata-core.c
|--- linux-2.6.16.original/drivers/scsi/libata-core.c 2006-03-20 05:53:29.000000000 +0000
|+++ linux-2.6.16.hdaps/drivers/scsi/libata-core.c 2006-04-30 13:25:24.000000000 +0100

although i tried the same on my suse box, with the same version of patch (2.5.4) and it didnt give me any errors.
is there something wrong?
any help is appreciated.
thank you

what distro are you using?

can you just install one of the kernels from here (if you're running fedora)

I've been trying to get it to work too but just found these kernels, we'll see how it goes

I've been having this problem as well, and here's what I've found.

The active protection section of hdaps is implemented through a /sys/ file, which is created through a patched kernel. The most recent kernel patch I have found is 2.6.20. I tried a patch (I'm not sure of the version, but I think it was 2.6.20) in a later kernel, but the resulting kernel would fail to boot.

As such, it appears that you're stuck. You can either regress your kernel version, or you can just live without.
