     5== Mailinglist ==
     6
     7If you have problems or need support, first look at the page with answers to
     8[http://smartmontools.sourceforge.net/faq.html frequently asked questions].
     9
     10If you don't find an answer there, the next step is, to
     11[http://sourceforge.net/search/?group_id=64297&type_of_search=mlists search the support mailing list archives].
     12
     13Note that from time to time SourceForge has mailing list problems
     14and you'll get a message telling you that '{{{Either your mailing list
     15name was misspelled or your mailing list has not been archived yet. If
     16this list has just been created, please retry in 2-4 hours}}}'. If
     17this happens, you'll have to try again later.  Or use the
     18following (and usually up to date) email archives:
     19
     20 * Gmane - [http://dir.gmane.org/gmane.linux.utilities.smartmontools smartmontools-support]
     21 * MARC - [http://marc.theaimsgroup.com/?l=smartmontools-support smartmontools-support]
     22 * MARC - [http://marc.theaimsgroup.com/?l=smartmontools-database smartmontools-database]
     23 * MARK Mail - [http://markmail.org/search/?q=list%3Asmartmontools-support smartmontools-support] offers interesting sophisticated search options and also present an overall analysis of the mailinglist activities. One disadvantage at the time is, that their copy of smartmontools-support email archive starts in Sep/2008. So only a part of our collection is available there. The other drawback is, that you need javascript enabled to use it.
     24
     25If you don't find an answer to your question in the archives, then please send an email to the
     26[http://lists.sourceforge.net/mailman/listinfo/smartmontools-support smartmontools-support mailing list]. This is a moderated forum: you are not
     27required to subscribe to the list in order to post your question. You can ask all questions concerning the installation and use of smartmontools.
     28Or perhaps you want to become a developer, or suggest some new extensions?

     32== Serious Problem Reports ==
     33If a serious problem (system lockup, etc.)
     34gets reported to us, it gets added to the
     35[http://sourceforge.net/browser/trunk/smartmontools/WARNINGS WARNINGS]
     36file in smartmontools. So far there are only a few problem systems listed.

     75== Distribution-specific bug reports ==
     76
     77The smartmontools package supports a number of different operating
     78systems. Some of those operating systems are also distributed by
     79multiple sources, and some of these maintain a database of bug
     80reports.  Here are links:
