Version of smartctl on the DL4100. Why older vsrsion?

Just checking things on the gizmos I have.


smartmontools release 5.38 dated 2008/03/10 at 10:44:07 GMT
smartmontools build host: x86_64-intel-linux-gnu
smartmontools build configured: 2014/08/26 10:49:39 UTC
smartctl compile dated Aug 26 2014 at 18:49:43

Now, the My Passport Wireless:

smartmontools release 6.1 dated 2013-03-16 at 14:35:27 UTC
smartmontools SVN rev 3800 dated 2013-03-16 at 14:36:20
smartmontools build host: arm-buildroot-linux-gnueabi
smartmontools build configured: 2015-09-08 06:48:46 UTC
smartctl compile dated Sep  8 2015 at 14:48:50

I’m guessing that there would be an ever up-to-date version of smartctl. would be nice if the latest version could be used for all the WD NAS gizmos. :slight_smile:


I think this will be a good idea to see if that can be updated on future updates.

Ok, but if it don’t get any votes or very little votes, will the idea be ignored?
