Since the last Ubuntu upgrade, which ships a 2.6.20 kernel, all my
drives are treated as SCSI ones, and are therefore listed as /dev/sdx in
fstab. The trouble is that now I don't seem to be able to configure them
with hdparm. Sdparm utility does not help to set multicount, acoustic
management and so on either--or at least I don't know how. Could someone
tell me what can be done?
According to information on openSUSE mailing list, which I have not yet tried, the following parameter;
which you can copy/paste into your /boot/grub/menu.lst, is supposed to return the drives to there native IDE state, where hdparm should work as normal. I repeat, I have not tried it myself, but have problems with the new format of treating everything as SCSI, so have made the change, but have not yet rebooted to test it. It's worth a shot, and easily removed, if it doesn't work for you.
