Kernel 2.6.17 upstream SATA bug?

Posted by Treg in Linux, Tech

These days I’m testing the new upcoming Ubuntu Linux release called Edgy Eft. I find some weird shutdown SATA bug. When I’m shutting down the computer, I can hear that the SATA disk doesn’t spin down like it should be. After posting this on the forum and reporting the bug on launchpad (bug #63937), it seems to be an upstream kernel 2.6.17 bug. Let’s hope this is solved soon, cause the sound that the harddisk makes when it shuts down isn’t that nice.
