This problem probably isn't related to this component but there is no
"other" option.
Comment 2 Rodger Wang 2004-10-12 07:41:48 EDT
I have exactly the same issue, and it persists in the lastest FC3T3

Comment 4 Bruce Allen 2004-11-02 07:50:15 EST
Kay, what is the relevance of the cpuspeed init script to smartd startup?
Comment 5 Sitsofe Wheeler 2004-11-20 07:48:50 EST
What sort of hard disks do you have? IDE/SCSI? If they are IDE are
they SATA?
Comment 6 Kevin Olemoh 2004-11-20 07:54:03 EST
I have IDE drives, no SATA's yet.
Comment 7 Bruce Allen 2004-11-20 10:23:03 EST
Please do the following (as root):

/usr/sbin/smartd --debug

and then post the output as an attachment.  Also please post

my smartd config file
Comment 10 Bruce Allen 2004-11-20 16:35:39 EST
Both the config file and the smartd --debug output look 100% normal
and correct.  Please post the contents from /var/log/messages when you do
/etc/init.d/smartd restart
(as root).

Well in truth I have not noticed a smartd failure since I upgraded to
fc3 I think whatever the problem was was already handled, I'll get
back to you with that output later on if you still want to see it.
Comment 12 kaushik 2005-09-15 16:08:19 EDT

Comment 13 Tomas Mraz 2005-11-16 06:53:43 EST
Well it seems that the original bug disappeared after upgrade to FC3.
