Description Alexandre Oliva 2002-12-30 14:52:39 UTC
Description of problem: smartctl tests run in Captive Mode (-s or -x) are interrupted by an IDE bus reset issued by the kernel if you ever mounted a filesystem from the disk under test. It doesn't work even if I unmount the disk after copying smartctl from my root filesystem to the root of the installer image. Any chance of adding smartctl to the installer image? It's a 48Kb file without any depdendencies that are not already present, and would make the installer CD more useful as a rescue disk.

Comment from Bruce Allen received via email: -------- Original Message -------- Subject: bugzilla bug 80722 Date: Thu, 22 May 2003 11:05:36 -0500 (CDT) From: Bruce Allen <firstname.lastname@example.org> An updated version of smartctl is available in the smartmontools package: http://smartmontools.sourceforge.net/ It would be nice to have this version of smartctl as part of the install image. It has additional abilities, such as the ability to run SMART self-tests AND to examine the results in the SMART self-test log. The existing smartsuite versionof smartctl can run self-tests but can't examine the self-test log to see what the results were.

I'm going through Bugzilla closing some bugs that have been marked as Modified for some period of time. I believe that most of these issues have been fixed, so I'm resolving these bugs as Rawhide. If the bug you are seeing still exists, please reopen this report and mark it as Reopened.
