Description Milan Kerslager 2006-09-20 13:21:25 EDT
smartctl /dev/sda (sda is SATA disc) does not return error code even fails on SATA

With -a parameter, returns code 4.

Please fix to be able to workaround bug #176835 (smartctl and smartd are unable
to detect SATA and trying to handle them as SCSI).

SATA disks works with kernel-utils-2.4-14.1.117 hence no error code is returned now.
