16470Re: WD MyBook Essential Spin down
- Dec 5, 2006Hi,
there are two points to consider. Firstly the HD and its enclosure
must be able to spin down and secondly the Kernel must also support
I have a IB-351UE with Agere Chip that can be set to spin down mode
with sdparm --command=stop /dev/sda on a machine running kernel
2.6.x (SUSE 10.0). But if I connect it to the NSLU2 with Unslung 6.8
and sdparm package 0.99-1 installed it refuses to spinn down. There
is no error message when an sdparm command is issued, it is silently
ignored. So I guess the Unslung Kernel (2.4.22) or the driver does
not support it.
