    How to install and run HDAPSD

    I have a toshiba qosmio x770 with ubuntu 12.04 64 bit and when I run HDAPSD, the output is:

    Sat Aug 25 03:20:31 2012: Starting hdapsd
    Sat Aug 25 03:20:31 2012: WARNING: You did not supply any devices to protect, trying autodetection.
    Sat Aug 25 03:20:31 2012: Adding autodetected device: sda
    Sat Aug 25 03:20:31 2012: Could not find a suitable interface

    in windows worked perfectly HDD protection

    what can I do?

    HDAPSD is just a daemon, and in order to properly work a kernel module hdaps is needed. Is the kernel module hdaps successfully loaded?

    What does the command

    Code:
    sudo modprobe -v hdaps
    give?

    Hi,

    there is no way to run hdapsd on your hardware. hdapsd plus the necessary kernel modules from tp-smapi-dkms package work on ThinkPads only.

    Nothing similar exists for other laptop brands on Linux.
