  • Because Sourceforge removed the product Wikispace, our wiki has moved to this new Trac.
  • We moved our CVS-Repository to Subversion and adjusted the download instructions accordingly. Christian Franke added a first feature which benefits from the change: If build from trunk, the first line of smartmontools output now reports the SVN revision date and number, e.g: smartctl 5.39 2009-07-16 r2838 [i686-pc-linux-gnu] (local build). So if you send smartctl output, we can now identify the exact revision :-)

  • Some newer Seagate/Maxtor? disks risk a sudden death due to buggy firmware: 7200.11, ES.2, Diamondmax 22. See the Details, reported by Seagates customer support.

  • Thanks to contributor Jordan Hargrave, smartmontools now have support for MegaRAID controllers. Get current version from SVN and use -d megaraid,N to inspect disk N behind the controller.
