I ended up having to force the rpm installation of smartmontools. =
However, now whenever I try to run smartd or smartctl, the return is =
just "Floating point exception". I've tried uninstalling and =
reinstalling to no avail, so I'm thinking that I've messed something up =
Thanks in advance,

Never force rpm unless you know that the reason it's trying to stop you
=66rom doing something is wrong. In your case, rpm was right. Uninstall
the package and delete the file from your hard disk.
Unless you need a bleeding edge version of smartmontools, the best way
to install it is to install the package which is shipped with your
distribution. This is a distribution issue, not a smartmontools issue,
so you'll have to consult its documentation as appropriate. If you tell
us what distribution you're using, someone might know how to get
smartmontools for it.
