OS X Package

You can get OSX package directly from http://builds.smartmontools.org/. Please keep in mind, that package is not signed, so you will have to open pkg file with ctrl key pressed. Another option is to use ports system, smartmontools is available in the brew, fink and MacPorts.

Current state of smartmontools Darwin / MacOSX port

Smartmontools is using very limited IOATASMARTInterface API provided by Darwin/OSX core. There is no possibility to send raw ATA or SCSI commands to a disk, so functionality of smartmontools on darwin is very limited. This could be changed only if Apple will extend IOATASMARTInterface API or will open source AHCI driver code.
