Re: I can not update GSmartControl

The script first renames the db file, then downloads the new db file. If it didn't, the new db file would not be present. Look at the date and timestamps after two updates done after one another: # ls -ahl /var/lib/smartmontools/drivedb total 384K drwxr-xr-x 2 root root 4,0K Feb 13 18:31 . drwxr-xr-...

Re: Max Speed Ethernet internet Possible?

Just a remark, on client side: iperf3 -R -c se...
