Boot Sequence

Hi there, I am new to Linux and Fedora in particular, and as a newbie I have a question about something to do with linux.

When I boot up Fedora there is the screen of various components being loaded and the big green OK for each load completion. I have one Failed load with starting smartd

What is this? Smart Drive (like in windows) ?

Should I be worried about it?

I am using Fedora Core 2, on a P3 933Mhz Intel Computer, 1GB of PC133 Ram, 80GB WD Hard Drive, Asus CUV4X Motherboard, and Nvidia Ti4200 128MB Video Card if that makes things any easier.

Thanks in advance for any help!

Smartd means Self Monitoring and Reporting Technology (SMART) Daemon. A feature more commonly seen in newer HDDs. It informs user if the HDD is becoming faulty or goes faulty or any other message. You have to enable S.M.A.R.T on your BIOS for this to take effect. See if that helps.

Review your /etc/smartd.conf file and make necessary changes.
By default , it checks for ATA/IDE hard disk. If you have SCSI hard disk, you need to update the above config file.

If you wish to turn it off, you can type "chkconfig smartd off"

Hey thanks folks. Appreciate the quick replies.

I thought it would be something like that. Have to check my bios, but I am pretty sure I have it enabled.

Oh well.... Thanks again!
