Thanks, got the latest version, Fedora core had an older one, the new one
looks pretty robust.

> How does smartd work?


good news, Macintosh support.

Modern harddisks report their pre-failure statistics and warnings to the
OS... smartd is a daemon that logs status messages and mails you if things
are really going south. It's always given me enough warning to get a backup,
and once I even got enough warning to replace the failing disk.
