What do these commands print:

smartctl -i /dev/hde

ls -l /sys/block/hde

cat /sys/block/hde/removable

hdparm -i /dev/hde

i must say, tha ti have a ITE8212 RAId card on another pc, and get the same
problem (smartd failed) !
Comment 6 Tomas Mraz 2006-03-22 12:47:18 EST
The current smartd configuration in rawhide should make smartd not fail if some
drive/driver doesn't support SMARTD.

You can workaround your problem by simply removing the line with /dev/hde from
the /etc/smartd.conf.
Comment 7 LarryT 2006-03-22 16:47:43 EST
that's it : i put a #in front of the line /dev/hde
smartd [ok] :)

hope ite raid will be assumed by smart, one day ... (?)

thx :)
