     203=== I found in syslog: 'Can't locate module block-major-65' ===
     204
     205When I run {{{smartd}}}, the SYSLOG {{{/var/log/messages}}}
     206contains messages like this:
     207{{{
     208smartd: Reading Device /dev/sdv
     209modprobe: modprobe: Can't locate module block-major-65
     210}}}
     211
     212This is because when {{{smartd}}} starts, if there is no
     213configuration file, it looks for all ATA and SCSI devices to monitor
     214(matching the pattern {{{/dev/hd[a-t]}}} or
     215{{{/dev/sd[a-z]}}}). The log messages appear because your
     216system doesn't have most of these devices.
     217
     218The solution is simple: use the {{{smartd}}} configuration file
     219{{{/etc/smartd.conf}}} to specify which devices to monitor.

     227=== What's the story on IBM SMART disks? ===
     228
     229Apparently some of the older SMART firmware on IBM disks can
     230interfere with the regular operation of the disk. If you have this
     231problem, here are some links to an IBM Firmware Upgrade that fixes the problem:
