i'm currently merging your recent Smartmontools 6.1 changes into my alternative package.
I've noticed that a small glitch in your way to install the smartd service. When you install the service with "smartd install", the service gets installed as interactive service (type 110) instead of a simple type 10 service which generates an error. As you just changed the way of the service to interact with desktop via the wtssendmessage tool, is the type 110 for the service still needed?
