Feature changed by: Richard Colvin (allianux)
Feature #310041, revision 3
Title: HP 3D GuardDrive

openSUSE-11.3: Unconfirmed
Requester: Desirable

Requested by: Dimitar Popov (dimitar_popov)

I wish openSUSE to supply a daemon, which uses the /dev/freefall to
provide hard disk head crash protection. There is an example
application in /usr/src/linux/Documentation/hwmon/hpfall.c which might
be used as a base for such a daemon and the needed modules (hp_accel
and lis3lv02d) are present in kernel 2.6.31. I think this is an
important feature for HP laptop users.

+ I assumed the HP 3D driveguard was setup during the
+ install process?  If not then I see this feature as a necessity for HP
+ laptop users.
