Hi,

I've been seing this message in the output of dmesg for some days:
Code:

...and it's not only that I've seen these messages (I could live with that :) ), it's that I can notice that the performance of the hard disk goes down in some circumstances (for example when loggin into kde)...so it's kind of annoying.

From what I've read googling it seems that it's related to the nvidia proprietary drivers...and if I don't log into kde and use the console to run hdparm -tT /dev/sda, dmesg doesn't show any errors...so, at least it's related to X somehow.

I don't know where (or when exactly) this came from...one week ago or so I was tinkering with hdparm to put one of my hard disks to sleep after 10 minutes of inactivity...but I don't think this should affect :?

Anyone else experiencing this?

Greetings!!

try:
touch /etc/pm/power.d/harddrive

and report results after a reboot please.

Thanks for your fast reply energyman76b.

touch /etc/pm/power.d/harddrive

will create the empty file harddrive.

That might prevent that error from happening. Try and see.

kde looks for that file to set some features - like acoustic managment. If it does not find that file it tries to set some defaults. If it finds the file it does exactly what is in the file - in this case nothing.
