#45 closed enhancement (fixed)

Add smartd '--capabilities' option

Reported by: Christian Franke Owned by: Christian Franke
Priority: minor Milestone: Release 5.40
Component: smartd Version: 5.39.1
Keywords: Cc: Giuseppe Iuculano

Description (last modified by Christian Franke)

Debian and Fedora version of smartd provide a '-C, --capabilities' option. If libcap-ng is available and this option is specified, smartd drops unnecessary POSIX capabilities.

Debian patch: http://patch-tracker.debian.org/patch/series/view/smartmontools/5.39-3/62_lowcap.patch

But the current version of the above patch introduces a regression, see ticket #41 and http://bugs.debian.org/cgi-bin/bugreport.cgi?bug=564876.

This should be fixed before we apply this patch.
