[openFATE 310041] HP 3D GuardDrive
Feature changed by: John McManaman (auxsvr)
Feature #310041, revision 7
Title: HP 3D GuardDrive

Package Wishlist: Unconfirmed
Requester: Desirable

Requested by: Dimitar Popov (dimitar_popov)
Partner organization:

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.

#2: Richard Colvin (allianux) (2010-12-10 15:42:28)
Could we have a dev's comment against this feature request of inclusion
in 11.4 or is this already included?

+ #3: John McManaman (auxsvr) (2011-09-18 17:13:23)
+ I have built an RPM for this, but the problem is that the program was
+ last patched 2 years ago and nobody knows whether it works at all. All
+ I can say is that it runs...
