Description Ronald F. Guilmette 2013-03-28 20:30:00 UTC
I may be wrong, but I believe that one of the purposes of allowing a
user who has one of the release distributions to boot into a "LiveCD"
version of FreeBSD is so that obscure problems... often obscure
_hardware_ problems... can be diagnosed without the need for actually
performing a full blown install of FreeBSD.

In this vein, it would enhance the usefulness of the LiveCD enormously
if the LiveCD actually contained a pre-built copy of smartmontools, or
at the very least, the smartctl utility.


Add pre-built smartmontools to the LiveCD.
