I just added smartmontools to my Ubuntu 6.06 LTS server, fully patched to latest apt updates. Version 5.34 of smartctl is running on the system, along with Webmin 1.360.
smartctl -a /dev/sda (or sdb) is able to get a full readout from both of my Seagate ST373207LC hard disks when executed from the command line, but in Webmin the same disks show "Supports SMART" "Yes" and "SMART Enabled" "No" with no other output.
Here's a sample of the command-line SMART output from one of the disks:root@mail:~# smartctl -a /dev/sda smartctl version 5.34 [i686-pc-linux-gnu] Copyright (C) 2002-5 Bruce Allen Home page is http://smartmontools.sourceforge.net/ Device: SEAGATE ST373207LC Version: 0005 Serial number: 3KT5JSN200009712Q8KL Device type: disk Transport protocol: Parallel SCSI (SPI-4) Local Time is: Tue Sep 11 11:06:25 2007 PDT Device supports SMART and is Enabled Temperature Warning Enabled SMART Health Status: OK Current Drive Temperature: 35 C Drive Trip Temperature: 68 C Elements in grown defect list: 0 Vendor (Seagate) cache information Blocks sent to initiator = 3941069591 Blocks received from initiator = 2256999821 Blocks read from cache and sent to initiator = 19105135 Number of read and write commands whose size <= segment size = 47847976 Number of read and write commands whose size > segment size = 216324 Error counter log: Errors Corrected by Total Correction Gigabytes Total ECC rereads/ errors algorithm processed uncorrec ted fast | delayed rewrites corrected invocations [10^9 bytes] errors read: 24384 0 0 24384 24384 191.098 0 write: 0 0 0 0 0 154.984 0 Non-medium error count: 0 [GLTSD (Global Logging Target Save Disable) set.

So obviously SMART is working, but it's not talking successfully to Webmin. Can anyone point me to the way to fix this?
