      Sorry for not getting back to you on this for a while.

      I made a patch for scsi-idle in linux-2.6.17 (i.e.
      packages/linux/ixp4xx-kernel_2.6.17.bb). It adds the necessary parts
      to the kernel so that the scsi-idle userland scripts can tell how long
      a harddrive was idle to spin it down eventually.

      The patch file applies to the directory openembedded/packages/linux.


      Please tell me if you need anything else.

        If you try to rebuild the kernel, you will see that the scsi-idle patch
        is checked out of the svn repository. I have already updated the
        scsi-idle patch, and it's in the kernel repo. The only thing missing was
        adding it to the .bb file like you did now. This was in response to Dean
        Dodds mail on the nslu2-developers mailinglist a little while ago.
        I cannot commit this change until tomorrow or the day after, depending
        on when I get back to my dev box.

          Ah, I must have missed that.

          Actually the patch file shows up in the nslu2-kernel directory but not
          in the ixp4xx dir (where I added it now).

          Building the openslug package however build the latter kernel, not the
          nslu2 one.


          Thanks for fixing it, anyway.
