As promised, here's the announcement.
The home site as well as included README.txt have all the info needed.
Send me feedback, flames, tomatoes, wishes, bug reports...
I'll try to answer all of them (although I have a busy schedule sometimes,
so don't expect me to be too quick).
See http://gsmartcontrol.berlios.de/home/index.php/en/Support .
So far, only Linux 2.6 systems are supported.
You need to have the following software installed:
pcre, smartmontools, GTK+ 2.6 or higher, Gtkmm 2.6 or higher,
libglademm 2.4 or higher. libglademm is not needed when using
GTK 2.12 and Gtkmm 2.12.
Note that GTK+ 2.12 and Gtkmm 2.12 are HIGHLY recommended.
While earlier versions may work, they may produce ugly results and
buggy behaviour. Libglademm is not needed when using GTK / Gtkmm 2.12.
A typical ./configure;make;make install
will do the trick. You may also try "rpmbuild -ta <tarball>" if you're on
You need to be root to run it. Otherwise, you won't be able to access the drives.
You may use kdesu / gnomesu / sux for that.
The rpm package installs desktop icons which will automatically
ask for root password. Look for GSmartControl in "System/More Programs".
Only ATA (both PATA and SATA) disks are supported for now.
Immediate Offline Tests are not supported. I haven't found a way to reliably
You may run several tests on different drives in parallel, but you will only
see the progress information of the last executing test.
Testing is only supported on drives which correctly report their progress
information in capabilities.
Not all drives support disabling Automatic Offline Data Collection, even if
they report otherwise.
Running on GTK+ / Gtkmm versions earlier than 2.12 may cause visual
artifacts, usability issues (especially with tooltips and icons), instability, etc...
The texts probably contain a lot of grammatical errors, English being my third
language and all.
That's all, I think.
