    Question Drive protection needed?

    Hi guys.
    It may not surprise you, but beside my servers I own a bunch of laptops running differnt systems. Now this is a question for Linux/openSuse only: Do I need some kind of drive protection software in case a notebook drops? If so, which one can you recommend?

    Oh, and for all Windows-People: Use ThinkVantage drive protection: It's awesome.

    Hi
    I think that is only implemented on IBM notebooks? There is a module
    but don't think its in the kernel yet. I'm sure there was a post in the
    forum about this, but can't remember where.....

    Means I didn't need to install the above mentioned package?
    What happens if I uninstall it? Will the importnat module be removed from the kernel? I'll try...

    THANKS FOR HELPING!

    Hi
    Yes, you should be able to remove. Then just run the modinfo command to
    ensure it's using the kernel one.

    Well, I just removed the package via YAST, where I sewlected it. Hope that's ok. As for your patience: Once again, I need to thank you and click the button.
