I have seen it before... some kind of system information tool which among other things was giving out some diagnostic info about my hard drives... like number off r/w errors, bad sectors etc. Im on Bodhi linux now which is ubuntu based and doesnt have anything like this installed. Please help me to locate which package I need. Thanks.
SMART is a usefull utilty (Self Monitoring Analysis and Reporting Technology)
smartctl --smart=on --offlineauto=on --saveauto=on /dev/hda (Enables SMART on first disk)
smartctl --test=long /dev/hda (Executes extended disk self-test)
smartctl --attributes --log=selftest --quietmode=errorsonly /dev/hda (Prints Self-Test & Attribute errors)
