You ought to report that to the smartmontools people,


It is 13.1... no point. :-(

They don't care which openSUSE you're running.

Ok, but it may have been corrected in a newer release which I can't
try,

s/can't/wont/. You could try it, just compile it yourself. It's not a
big deal, Carlos.

and if they add that chipset I will not see it because 13.1 gets
no updates.

Don't be so stubborn. Join the community and report it - future users
might benefit from it even if you refuse to.

Please think. I have version 6.2, and their current version is 6.5. The first
thing they will surely tell me is to upgrade. Well, it is not available for
13.1, so I would have to build it myself.

I have seen that there is version 6.4 available in repo "hardware", so I will
try that one just now.

Same problem:

AmonLanc:~ # smartctl -a /dev/sdb
smartctl 6.4 2016-01-06 r4199 [i686-linux-3.12.59-47-default] (SUSE RPM)

/dev/sdb: Unknown USB bridge [0x0aec:0x3050 (0x100)]
Please specify device type with the -d option.

Use smartctl -h to get a usage summary

AmonLanc:~ #

So the next step is me downloading and building from source version 6.5. If I
succeed, then I have to test it, and if it doesn't work, then I can report. If
I don't succeed building, I can do nothing, because I can't test with the
latest release.

Built. But it still fails to run:

Now, and only now, I can think about reporting.

Where to? Mail list, bugzilla? I see two mail lists.
