[New: openFATE 314868] Add Smart GUI Monitor Application
Feature added by: Stanley Miller (stan_qaz)

Feature #314868, revision 1
Title: Add Smart GUI Monitor Application

Package Wishlist: Unconfirmed
Requester: Desirable

Requested by: Stanley Miller (stan_qaz)
Partner organization:

This GUI version has been around for a long time but only exists as an unstable
version: gsmartcontrol - Hard disk drive health inspection tool GSmartControl
is a graphical user interface for smartctl (from smartmontools pac kage), which
is a tool for querying and controlling SMART (Self-Monitoring, Anal ysis, and
Reporting Technology) data on modern hard disk drives. It allows you t o
inspect the drive's SMART data to determine its health, as well as run various
tests on it. ------

It would be nice if this could be reviewed and possibly promoted to a stable
status and included in the stable repository and possibly even installed by
default and an entry added to the System - Monitor menu.

Use Case:
SMART is very useful in checking your disk health and current status but
openSUSE only offers a command line version that isn't simple to use.

Business case (Partner benefit): The GUI version is much easier for a novice to find and use.
