hdparm options lost at shutdown
Posted on 2003-12-03
-W1 -k1 -K1 /dev/hdeI've recently tweaked hdparm to improve performance. When using the browser, throughput has increased by an order of magnitude. Unfortunately, I dual boot (sigh). And when I find it necessary to go back into Windows XP, then boot into Debian Linux again, most of the hdparm options have reverted to off.
hdparm -A1 -c3 -m16 -d1 -X69 -u1 -W1 -k1 -K1 /dev/hde
What do I have to do to get these options to stay turned on during a reboot cycle?
