lphdisk

lphdisk n. /elf-disk/ - utility for preparing a hibernation partition for APM Suspend-To-Disk

Current version: lphdisk 0.9.1 - Minor bugfix release
Released: 12 February 2002

Welcome! Here you will find lphdisk and related information. lphdisk is a Linux utility to format hibernation partitions for use with the APM Suspend-To-Disk features on laptops with Phoenix NoteBIOS. While one does not need this utility to use this notebook feature, if the memory size ever changes, disk gets upgraded/repartitioned, the hibernation partition may need to be recreated. Until now, this could only be accomplished by booting off of a DOS floppy and using a buggy utility called PHDISK.EXE provided either straight from Phoenix Technologies or the hardware manufacturer/distributor.

Now, on with the show...

You may wish to view the README file before downloading the source.
Also, I have compiled a list of laptops that lphdisk has been test and is known to work on.

Thanks to Jeremy Wade, Mark Allen, Brad Douglas, and Heather Stern for their support of this project... and last but definitely not least, Alex Stewart who has not only rewritten nearly all of lphdisk, but provided a number of bugfixes, patches, and suggestions.
