#39 closed defect (fixed)

Silent "failure" without -parameters

Reported by: Giuseppe Iuculano Owned by: Christian Franke
Priority: trivial Milestone: Release 5.41
Component: smartctl Version: 5.39
Keywords: Cc: 435579-forwarded@…



I'm forwarding a bug reported by a Debian user.
Version: smartctl 5.39 2009-12-09 r2995 [i686-pc-linux-gnu] (local build)

This was my first time running smartctl. Without parameters it reported
helpfully that I need a device name. When running "smartctl /dev/sda" it
printed copyright notice and a home directory URL and no errors or anything
useful. I thought for a while it might be broken.

I suggest using -H or -a as the default output when no parameters are given.
Or at least an error message that some parameter is needed.
