Description Yarda 2007-06-17 20:04:19 UTC
=sys-apps/hdparm-7.5 and also =sys-apps/hdparm-7.3 doesn't work with one dash (-) and two dash (--) parameters used simultaneously.

Example that fails with version 7.3 and 7.5 but works with 6.9-r1 and previous:

hdparm -d1 --security-freeze /dev/hda

This is problematic behavior when used such a combination in hdparm init script.

Reproducible: Always

this is done on purpose in the code ...

handle_standalone_longarg (char *name)
    if (num_flags_processed) {
        if (verbose)
            fprintf(stderr, ...);

you cant use some long args after an action flag (-d is the action flag in this case)

if you still feel this is incorrect, please e-mail about it

It is bug and due to reply from Mark Lord, it will be fixed in hdparm-7.6.
