Searching for a "S.M.A.R.T." and a temperature-fan monitor program


I'm looking for a S.M.A.R.T. program (just like HDD health for windows) which predicts hard disk failures. I'm also looking for a good hardware monitoring program like Speedfan. I have Suse 9.3 w KDE.

Hi.

If you don't mind using the command line, there's 'smartctl' for monitoring SMART drives.

gkrellm is probably your best bet for monitoring fans/temperature/voltages etc.

Ok I installed Smartctl, it was actually on the Suse DVD. But how do I run it? (newbie question I know...)
I also installed gkrellm. It is a very nice program, but I have some questions for it: 1. The only way to run it is from /usr/bin/gkrell ?
2.Can I minimize it to the tray?
3. It doesn't detect my M/B sensors (fans-voltages-temperatures). Why?

Hi again.

You'll have to install lm_sersors to get gkrellm to see your temperatures etc.

Apparently there's a KDE app called ksensors whick might be worth looking at. That needs lm_sensors too though.

Please help... I downloaded lm_sensors, it came by a tar.gz. Inside the readme file was:
"FOR 2.5/2.6 KERNELS, do not attempt to compile this package.
Use the drivers already in the 2.5/2.6 kernel tree."

How can I find these drivers? (my kernel is 2.6). What is the kernel tree?

Start by reading the lm-sensors page. It's all explained in detail over there.

Can't imagine that there isn't a package made for SuSe btw. If there is just install it and run sensors-detect, edit the right files and install gkrellm to see the result. But again, the steps to get to this result is explained in detail on the lm-sensors page......

Verify kernel source is in /lib/modules/2.6.11.4-21.8-default/build and then
cd to /lib/modules/2.6.11.4-21.8-default/build and run ´make config´ !!

Exception: if you´re using a stock RedHat/Fedora kernel...
(1) Install the appropriate kernel-source RPM.

(3) Do *NOT* ´make dep´ or ´make config´.

make: *** [/lib/modules/2.6.11.4-21.8-default/build/.config] Error 1

How can I install? Can't find any more help in the site

The error states: install the kernel source, so I would start by doing that. I think (not using SuSe) that you use Yast to accomplish that.
There must be some post about doing that on the SuSe forum.

Ok I installed the kernel-source package from Yast (about 200MB), but I get the same... And inside the /lib/modules/2.6.11.4-21.8-default/build/
there is no "configs", just a "module.symvers" file...
