SMARTMONTOOLS contains utilities that control and monitor storage
devices using the Self-Monitoring, Analysis and Reporting Technology
(S.M.A.R.T.) system build into ATA and SCSI Hard Drives. This is used
to check the reliability of the hard drive and to predict drive
failures. SMARTMONTOOLS Version 5.x is designed to comply to the
ATA/ATAPI-5 specification (Revision 1). Future releases of
SMARTMONTOOLS (Versions 6.x and 7.x) will comply with the ATA/ATAPI-6
and ATA/ATAPI-7 specifications.
This package is meant to be an up-to-date replacement for the
ucsc-smartsuite and smartsuite packages, and is derived from that
created an ebuild for smartmontools, can be found here:
thanks for your submissions
Please pay attention to the following line I posted:
dodoc CHANGELOG TODO COPYING README smartd.conf
It makes sense in my opinion to ship the package with an example file as the
smartmontools author wanted.
added a new ebuild, this one installs the example .conf file and
the man page for said .conf file
