This problem probably isn't related to this component but there is no
"other" option.

Comment 2 Rodger Wang 2004-10-12 11:41:48 UTC
I have exactly the same issue, and it persists in the lastest FC3T3

Comment 4 Bruce Allen 2004-11-02 12:50:15 UTC
Kay, what is the relevance of the cpuspeed init script to smartd startup?

Comment 5 Sitsofe Wheeler 2004-11-20 12:48:50 UTC
What sort of hard disks do you have? IDE/SCSI? If they are IDE are
they SATA?

Comment 6 Kevin Olemoh 2004-11-20 12:54:03 UTC
I have IDE drives, no SATA's yet.

Comment 7 Bruce Allen 2004-11-20 15:23:03 UTC
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 21:35:39 UTC
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).

Comment 11 Kevin Olemoh 2004-11-21 22:06:24 UTC
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 20:08:19 UTC
Hi im also facing the similar problem btw im using FC4

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