Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 464912
hddtemp still spins up the disk
Last modified: 2008-10-15 22:03:35 EDT
Description of problem:
Even if the -w (wakeup) flag is NOT provided, hddtemp spins up the disk.
I found that this bug is already discussed in launchpad #160621
and regarded as solved for version 0.3-beta15-43.
I've checked the rawhide repo for a version that contains this fix, but the version there is still buggy.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
#hdparm -C /dev/sda
drive state is: standby
# hddtemp /dev/sda
/dev/sda: FUJITSU MHV2080BH: 39°C
# hdparm -C /dev/sda
drive state is: active/idle
drive spins up
check does not take place if -w is not provided, maybe check if a disk supports a readout without waking it up
Thanks for the report. Confirmed on two F-9 boxes, one with a PATA (libata) drive and another with a SATA drive, applying the fix from Debian fixes both.

I've tried hddtemp-0.3-0.16.beta15.fc9 and can confirm that hddtemp now behaves correctly!
Thanks for the confirmation. If you don't mind, providing one more "works for me" comment in Bodhi for the update (see comment 3 for the URL) would cause it to be pushed to stable updates...
