Description Alexey Titov 2007-06-09 18:37:28 UTC
Description of problem:
I have Asus A2800S laptop. FC6 detected my hard disk as IDE (hda) and computer
halted normally. FC7 detects hard disk as SATA (sda). When system is halting
(just before power off) I hear a suspicious "click" from hard disk. I have to
downgrade kernel to 2.6.18-1.2869.fc6.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. halt system
Actual results:
system is halted, but hard disk is not halted properly

Expected results:
disk must be halted quietly

  I was wondering about this too.  The HD makes a much louder sound just before
turning off than it did in FC6, almost a thump.  I have no idea if it's anything
to be concerned about.

  This appears to be a duplicate of bug #243021.

Hello Alexey,

I'm reviewing this bug as part of the kernel bug triage project, an attempt to
isolate current bugs in the fedora kernel.


I am CC'ing myself to this bug and will try and assist you in resolving it if I can.

This bug has been closed by the reporter - I'm aware of the other issues you are
having Andre but could you tell me if you are still having problems with this as

There hasn't been much activity on this bug for a while. Could you (the
reporter) tell me if you are still having problems with the latest kernel?

If the problem no longer exists then please close this bug or I'll do so in a
few days if there is no additional information lodged.

  This has been fixed for me for a while now.

Comment 5 Alexey Titov 2007-09-17 19:12:26 UTC
No, I do not have this bug now. I do not use Fedora any more... Now I use
Ubuntu. There was the same problem, but I find a workaround:

echo 1 > /sys/class/scsi_disk/0\:0\:0\:0/stop_on_shutdown
