Description of problem:

To remove the Hard Disk Drive Head Parking , I wanted to configure hdparm service at the startup with systemd.

For this, I must start firstly the following command:

touch /etc/pm/power.d/harddrive

What is strange is that on one of my two computers running Rosa Linux Fresh R7, I could follow the tutorial without a problem, and it works, but on the other directory "pm" does not exist in etc !!! So after every restart, the head parking comes back ...

I try to install the pm-utils unsuccessfully for the missing directory ...

So ? No solution ? Arghh...

Have you tried to simply create /etc/pm/power.d folder manually? It is not created by our pm-utils, indeed, but packages that needs to have something in this folder just install it by themselves.

Actually it looks like nobody tried to use this trick for hdparm in our KDE.
