Hi, Daniel, This is the output:
Checking setuid files and devices: Checking for uids of 0: root 0 toor 0 Checking for passwordless accounts: Checking login.conf permissions: ***.home kernel log messages: +++ /tmp/security.G4QuXmuU 2009-04-29 03:01:08.000000000 +0200 +ad4: Idle, spin down +ad4: drive spun down. +ad8: Idle, spin down +ad8: drive spun down. +ad4: request while spun down, starting. +ad8: request while spun down, starting. +ad8: Idle, spin down +ad8: drive spun down. +ad4: Idle, spin down +ad4: drive spun down. +ad4: request while spun down, starting. The timestamps in /var/log/messages suggested that "+ad4: request while spun down, starting." happened at 3:01 am. It would not be very nice if it was due to cron start up; I don't have any system partitions on those drives, it shouldn't touch them... Regards, Alexander. --- On Wed, 4/29/09, Daniel C.
