HP 3D GuardDrive

Feature state

Package Wishlist


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.

Could we have a dev's comment against this feature request of inclusion in 11.4 or is this already included?

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...

From my knowledge the hp-drive-guard 0.3.12 RPM file provided within the distro requires HAL? Opensuse no longer uses this system to manage the hardware. Is there a way of updating this?
