Hd tune program for linux?

Postby unreal223 » Mon Mar 03, 2008 5:55 pm

Is there a linux program like hd tune for windows?
Hdtune will monitor hard drive temp, smart status, and even scan the drive for errors.

I would really like a linux program that will do this. I'm a little paranoid about hds failing.

You can install them from Synaptic
