Please kindly fix this package. It does install /etc/smartd.conf without backing up the previous instance of the file.

(See full list of package tar file contents at end.)

See Arch's PKGBUILD for reference:

Also please remove example script from /etc and move it to /usr/share/smartmontools:


You can configure the build to put it to the preferred location:

This package doesn't install /etc/smartd.conf. Configuration file is installed to etc/conf.d/smartd and already backed up during upgrade of the package.

Just a note: Updating just reset my /etc/smartd.conf to default. So take care to keep a backup.

Compile error: --disable-drivedb, --enable-savestates, --enable-attributelog are no longer supported From this morning…

Temporarily added automake-1.13 to make dependencies until project adds support for version 1.15.

@SpotlightKid, I used your PKGBUILD to update the package.
