  Description     : Disk protection for HP machines.

A lot of the HP laptops have 3D Driveguard. This package is crucial for
the HP laptops that include the 3D Driverguard (many from HP) and should
be include in Ubuntu. The device use the PC accelerometer device used to
park the hard drive spindle when the notebook PC falls or is in motion
may not function as expected after performing a recovery process using
restore media. When functioning correctly, an amber LED will light in
the hard drive notification area.

Now, the driver for the accelerometer is loaded by default in Linux
Kernel as modules hp_accel and lis3ld02d. It can be used as a Joystick
as well. And works really well in Ubuntu. I have been trying the
performance. I have it on my HP touchsmart tm2 and with Ubuntu 11.10
amd64. So in order to activate the protection it is needed to run the
hpfall.c deamon that is not include. In order to render useful the
device on the HP laptops the package should be included in Ubuntu.
Otherwise, the device won't protect the hard disk in case of fall and it
is useful just to play pinball with the HP laptops.

Hi,

This is an automatic email to change the status of hpfall back from ITP
(Intent to Package) to RFP (Request for Package), because this bug hasn't seen
any activity during the last 12 months.

If you are still interested in adopting hpfall, please send a mail to
<control@bugs.debian.org> with:

 retitle 653687 ITP: hpfall -- Disk protection for HP machines.
 owner 653687 !
 thanks

However, it is not recommended to keep ITP for a long time without acting on
the package, as it might cause other prospective maintainers to refrain from
packaging that software. It is also a good idea to document your progress on
this ITP from time to time, by mailing <653687@bugs.debian.org>.

Thank you for your interest in Debian,
-- 
Lucas, for the QA team <debian-qa@lists.debian.org>
