The Hdparm package contains an utility that is useful for controlling ATA/IDE controllers and hard drives both to increase performance and sometimes to increase stability.
This package is known to build and work properly using an LFS-7.4 platform.
As well as being useful, incorrect usage of Hdparm can destroy your information and in rare cases, drives. Use with caution and make sure you know what you are doing. If in doubt, it is recommended that you leave the default kernel parameters alone.
