Good news for all interested in hardware compatibility and reliability.
I've started a new project to estimate reliability of hard drives and SSD in real-life conditions based on the SMART data reports collected by Linux users in the Linux-Hardware.org database since 2014. The initial data (SMART reports), analysis methods and results are publicly shared in a new github repository: https://github.com/linuxhw/SMART. Everyone can contribute to the report by uploading probes of their computers by the hw-probe tool!
Where do we get that tool from? It is not available at openSUSE:
You can get the source and use it with the following:
git clone http://github.com/linuxhw/hw-probe cd hw-probe sudo make install prefix=/usr sudo hw-probe -all -upload -id <description>
If you want to see what goes into the database, look at https://linux-hardware.org/?probe=550460aaac
Is this a package we should make available for openSUSE users?
If you want to populate the database with many entries, yes :-)
And also announce it on a more visible mail list, too.
