Now I am more in doubt than I was before. On the
machine that told me that I do not have permission
running as su - root user, since I updated it to
Fedora Core 5 problem ( with hdparm -d1 /dev/hdc) was
solved. On another machine running FC4, it has never
denied me the right to hdparm -d1 /dev/hdc
here it goes
[olivares at localhost ~]$ uname -r
[olivares at localhost ~]$ cat /etc/fedora-release
Fedora Core release 4 (Stentz)
[olivares at localhost ~]$ su -
[root at localhost ~]# hdparm -d1 /dev/hdc
setting using_dma to 1 (on)
using_dma = 1 (on)
[root at localhost ~]#
So I wonder now if it is on machine basis, dvd
drives/hard drives. Everything is working nicely on
this older machine. What could be happening.
